Yoga sessions cradled the participants in the sense of ujjayi breathing (ocean breathing) to the rhythm of a playlist with electro and shamanic touches. An hour of well-being as after a refreshing sea bath.</p><p>The public was able to try the practice of toyboard. On a small foam surfboard, it is the ideal activity to develop tonicity, motor skills, coordination and balance with a little touch of muscle building. “Do it yourself” activities have also been proposed, always with the aim of educating, proposing solutions to act for the oceans and a responsible consumption.</p>
