Yoga workshop by Sanctuary Niseko

We at Sanctuary Niseko Yoga are excited to announce the return of Cat Alip Douglas at the end of the month (Feb 2016), after a successful series of Workshops and classes last year.

Cat from Sangye Yoga London and her husband Phil are here for their second year, teaching one open session at Hirafu 188 and 4 workshops at The Orchards, Niseko, between 27 Feb and 2 Mar.

We are excited to bring such high calibre teachers to the area, exposing Niseko to a broader audience and bringing with them attendees from all reaches of the globe such as Brazil, Europe and North America. It is a great opportunity to give an alternative to and also compliment the traditional draws of Niseko for residents and visitors alike.

Tickets are available either through Sanctuary Niseko or at Explore Niseko
