Hatha includes three distinct yet coexisting practices. The first being Asanas (postures) that help us understand yoga through the experience of the body and restore and promote balance and physical health. Asanas in this class are practiced for their function, the effect they have on the body, rather than their form, the aesthetic shape. Pranayama (breathwork) tones the nervous system and manipulates prana, the vital force that nourishes both body and mind. Dhyana (meditation) is a state of being that brings clarity and a sense of uninterrupted peace and unity to the mind.
The resulting effect of these three practices is a deep understanding of how our body, mind, and spirit are interwoven, cultivating an even deeper understanding of the interconnectedness of everything. All classes will offer variations of asanas so that the practice is accessible and inclusive for every level. Beginner suggestions are offered so all are welcome!
