Hatha Yoga is considered the name for general yoga, an all encompassing form. The word Hatha means Sun/Moon which implies balance is a goal we aim for.
Our Hatha teachers hold diplomas of health from Nature Care College, where they received a broad 2 year education in the various yoga styles. This diploma also included philosophy, history, special needs, meditation and other well-being practices like Ayurvedic medicine and holistic counseling.
The Hatha Yoga classes offer a breath-focused, vinyasa (movement), physical approach that helps connect the student with their body, at the same time creating a quiet mind.
Like Iyengar Yoga, props are used in the classes to help tailor poses to the individual. And, alignment is emphasized to foster the best posture and movement. Every class has a relaxing period for reducing stress and centering the mind.
