Hatha Yoga class is designed to deepen your Yoga practise. To cultivate your concentration, using traditional Asana (poses), Pranayama (breathing exercises) and creative intentions.
Each class will follow the same journey through a variety of warm up exercises. These include inversions, seated poses, standing poses, balances and relaxation. From week to week we will have a different focus and a play with different Yoga poses & exercises.
Hatha Yoga will challenge you to deepen your yoga practise by working towards staying in a pose for 3-4minutes. Whilst being encouraged to listen to your own body and develop a Yoga that you can take off the mat and out the studio into the world.
This class is an ideal step from our beginners classes, taking you to the next stage of your yoga journey. Even though this will be more challenging than the beginner sessions. Remember Yoga is never a serious business and there will be lots of opportunities to be playful and have a laugh.
Most forms of yoga in the West can be classified as Hatha Yoga. Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. The word “hatha” can be translated two ways: as “willful” or “forceful,” or the yoga of activity, and as “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha), the yoga of balance. Hatha practices are designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit in preparation for meditation.
