GREEN & BLUE YOGA ROOMS
The Green Room is framed by beautiful old windows across the Hutgasse and Gebergasse displaying a magical view of the Basel old town roof tops and the sunset. It keeps the original house parquet wooden floor which gives it an atmosphere of purity & lightness. It can comfortably host 25 practitioners and it provides the perfect atmosphere for our busiest classes & special workshops.
The Blue Room was renovated in 2015. It provides an intimate atmosphere due to its smaller size. The dark wooden floor basks into the sunrise light each morning and it fills the space with a special calm & introspective warmth. It can host between 15 to 20 practitioners.
