Mindfulness with Hatha Yoga (Sundays, Mar-Apr)

Yoga introduces mindfulness to movement so that you pay attention to your alignment and how the positions really feel in your body, with conscious breaths.

 

Hatha yoga is a slower, more alignment-focused class. This 1 hour session will start with centering and grounding breath work, followed by a variety of postures like standing poses, reclining poses, balance poses, and twists, which end with Savasana (a resting period). After that, a short breath-controlled exercises, called Pranayama will be practiced. The trainer will demonstrate and explain each movement and move among the participants to ensure proper technique and assist as necessary.

 

While practicing hatha yoga, you will require:

(i) An exercise mat of adequate thickness and density to place on the floor for protection of your spine and knees;

(ii) A long towel or stretchy rubber exercise band; and

(iii) A flat cushion or small folded towel to place under your head, if necessary.

(iv) Blocks/ thick books

She then investigated different styles of Yoga, moving to Vinyasa and Yin before finally developing her own practice to suit the needs of the body and mind. Her love and passion for teaching now comes from a desire to learn from everyone and share all the aspects of her practice that have helped her. In flowing the breath and the body together, she hopes to encourage her students to a mindful practice, cultivating inner peace and self-love.
