Hatha Yoga is the foundation of which all modern yoga was built. When we define Hatha Yoga we think of ha (sun) tha (moon) which brings us a practice that focuses on balancing our entire being. In this 75 minute all levels class, accessible yoga postures are practiced to align, strengthen and promote flexibility in the body. Breathing techniques and meditation are used throughout.
This is a fast paced flow class that will get your heart rate up and strengthen your muscles. We will use the sun salutations and that feeling of repetition to move through a variety of poses while we focus on the flow of our breath.
During this class we take our time warming up the mind, breath and physical body using techniques like meditation and pranayama. Focusing on the breath guiding us, we flow through Vinyasa like sequences at a slow and accessible pace for everyone. We hold certain postures longer than the usual vinyasa class in order to fully enjoy each moment.
This gentle practice is suitable for all levels of experience. Remaining seated or laying down for the entirety of our time together we are able to activate our parasympathetic nervous system and move from the typical fight or flight mode into rest and digest. Each class is designed to move the body through postures that link the body with breath, release tension, increase flexibility, and cultivate a calm presence.
This is a form of gentle yoga that focuses on the connective tissues of your lower body, specifically the hips. By holding these postures for several minutes, the nervous system is able to fully relax as well as the muscles so students begin to still the outer and inner self.
