Networking activities 

Yoga classes - Close your eyes and breathe in!

Slow down in our complimentary yoga classes. Ideal for beginners, these sessions will focus on: stretching, relaxation and meditation.
Marseille is the European Capital of Sport this year and we didn’t want to miss out on this opportunity. We all know about those day-long or multi-day conferences when the day is seemingly endless and it is hard to keep up our energy!  Jump in with easy morning yoga in order to refresh the body, bring focus to the mind, and build energy — just what you need!
The benefits of yoga are extraordinary, a perfect release for all those hunched over desk shoulders. When yoga is practiced, the physical, emotional, and mental tension reducing techniques are immediately noticed.
Come and join us!
When: Monday 27th and Tuesday 28th of March, from 8:00 to 8:30 am.
Where: Palais des Congrès - Marseille Chanot – 1st Level Auditorium

This class is open to all levels. No equipment or experience is required.
