Hatha Yoga (Ha = Sun + Tha = Moon) combines the Yin + Yang elements of Yoga balancing out all sides and aspects of the body. Hatha Yoga traditionally holds poses for longer than a Flow class, which allows the student to feel deeply into what is taking place within the body. Students can feel the parts of the body which are activating and those that perhaps need a little more activation, empowering the student to find their own balance. Hatha Yoga gives the body all over tone, strength and connection with breath, bringing the student back to a feeling of being whole.
BEST SUITED TO:
Hatha Yoga offers something for everyone student, whether experienced or new as there is more time to move from one pose to another in a mindful and safe manner.
