This class is geared toward individuals experienced with basic yoga poses. In this Hatha yoga class, you can expect to enjoy movement with limited instruction and consistent flow. The essence of yoga is being alive... to breathe, relax, feel, watch and allow. Hatha yoga emphasizes methods of practicing yoga postures (asanas) and energetic breathing exercises (pranayamas) for physical health and well-being. Ha means "Sun" and tha means "moon."
In this class, we will balance the sun and moon energies of the physical body. We will explore deepening the breath, allowing the body to find a natural rhythm through connecting the breath with movement. True strength, endurance, and range of motion are developed incrementally and gradually, not by force. The mind-body connection will be emphasized in this class, where we will practice energizing as well as restorative yoga postures. Learn to listen to your body's needs and to respect its limitations. Experience how the subtle power of yoga works with all aspects of your being- physical, psychological, and spiritual.
