Hatha - the sun and the moon
Hatha Yoga helps to create strength and flexibility. It helps to reduce stress, creates balance, and promotes energy.
Hatha Yoga signifies all types of Yoga as Ha means the Sun and Tha means the Moon. The practice of Hatha Yoga balances the sun (male) and the moon (female) energies in our bodies. Postures can help to ease pain and are beneficial for back care and injuries including RSI.
Suitable for Beginners, Hatha Yoga is characterized by it's alignment and attention to detail. A safe and sure way to health and well being. Time is spent in the poses (Asanas) discovering the correct alignment and energy flow of the body in the pose.
Beginner classes are suitable for absolute beginners. General classes are a step up. In a General class just have an open mind and a positive feeling to give things a go - you don't need to be able to do advanced postures, there will always be an alternative. We don't accept Beginners in the General classes so that we get the chance to move deeper.
In a Hatha Yoga class you can expect to practice a combination of standing poses, seated poses, backbends or abdominal strengthening poses and twists. Or a mixture of all the poses, so that very rarely are classes exactly the same. In the General classes we practice the above and also the inversions.
All Hatha Yoga classes finish with a deep relaxation to leave you feeling rejuvenated, relaxed and renewed.
