What’s the difference between Urban Releaf and Yoga?


Urban Releaf is primarily a multi-sensory nature based programme that incorporates the most effective and proven mindfulness and yoga style techniques. The simple moves are based on the characteristics of different animals.

Some of the moves have been inspired by well-known yoga asanas, building on centuries of knowledge into postures that are effective in promoting relaxation.
