Hatha translates from Sanskrit as 'Ha' meaning Sun and 'Tha' meaning Moon and the practice of Hatha Yoga aims to join these two energies through a class including:
pranayama (breathing), asana (movement) including a warm up, Surya Namaskar (sun salutations), standing postures, crouching postures, seated postures, poses laying on the belly, poses on the back, inversions and savasanah, a final resting pose; mantra (chanting); mudra (hand gestures).
Hatha Yoga is a moderate paced class with focus on alignment, correct technique, connecting movement to breath.
Energising class, connecting asana (postures) and breath together in a flowing sequence.
Ideal morning class to bring vitality to body and mind.
Smooth, steady paced class connecting asana (poses) to breath with long stretches and releases.
