Hatha

Considered as the classical yoga, Hatha is the most popular form of yoga practice in the west, and its the foundation of many other new yoga styles. Hatha Yoga is said to balance the opposing energies of the body - sun and moon, male and female and all the dichotomies in the universe. This form of Yoga is most often identified with the practice of basic yoga postures(asana), experience breathing techniques, and relaxation.

In Hatha yoga, we manipulate the energy on the physical and energetical body, to reach all the different layers of our consciousness. Hatha Yoga will promote physical vitality and mental balance.

Yin yang Yoga

Yin Yang Yoga blends two styles of yoga into one practice - bringing together the benefits of passively holding yoga poses with more dynamic sequences and standing postures.

For all levels, 75minute class.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga regulates the flow of energy in the body .
It is a more meditative approach with a physical focus much deeper than Yang like practices. Here the practitioner is trying to access the deeper tissues such as the connective tissue and fascia and many of the postures, that we hold for longer periods of time, focus on areas that encompass a joint (hips, sacrum, spine).

Yin yoga is an effective practice to maintain the flexibility of the body, to deepen the connection with the breath and train the mind to remain present through the entire practice.

All levels welcome.
