“Ha” means sun, and “tha” means moon. Hatha yoga is about union. Any form of yoga where you’re connecting breath to movement falls under the umbrella of hatha yoga. Sun salutes build heat (like solar power), and are sometimes thought of as “masculine” in nature (although they’re beneficial poses for all of us!), while deep stretchy poses are thought of as lunar, and feminine (although they’re also good and necessary for all of us). What we’re looking for is balance. We need action, but we also need to be able to slow down and nurture ourselves. Our Hatha classes are more methodical, the poses are often held longer and broken down more thoroughly, and sometimes they are a little less sweaty than our vinyasa flow classes.
Staying open to possibilities - it can be one of the hardest aspects of yoga to master, and also one of the most beneficial. This practice aims to take you on a journey through both the familiar and the unfamiliar, with the intention of helping you cultivate a more open mind to be able to roll with life's inevitable ups and downs. Enjoy!
A slow and strong journey toward the wonders of Mayurasana, otherwise known as Peacock Pose. This practice is all about taking what makes you uncomfortable and learning how to let it nourish your mind, body and soul. Enjoy!
Whether you're looking to improve your forearm balance skills or you're just looking for a solid practice to help you work your core and build shoulder strength, this class has the goods for you... enjoy!
The practice opens with a bit of core work, but from there it's all about stretching. Mostly sitting, a few standing poses. No flow. Save your chaturangas for another day. We finish up with supta baddha konasana and reclined supported bound angle pose, before a gentle inversion and savasana. Chill out and stretch with this one. Enjoy! Lauren
