This yoga course combines meditation, postures and breathing techniques to develop a profound relaxation technique.
What will you learn on this course?
Hatha is a subtle classical yoga which incorporates various asanas (postures) and is deepened with the use of pranayamas (breathing exercises) and meditation. You will learn sequences that combine postures and breathing exercises. These sequences become familiar over the duration of the course and the learning process happens naturally as part of the flow of the class. You will also learn various meditation techniques and how yoga is innate, bringing a mindfulness to one’s practice that leads to deep relaxation and joy.
The tutor will also introduce you to Dru Yoga. Dru Yoga is deeply relaxing, yet rejuvenating. Made up of sequences ranging from soft and flowing to more dynamic and containing classic yoga postures, it's a style of yoga that integrates movement, breath-work, an appreciation of subtle energy and directed intention to integrate our body, mind and spirit. It works well for improving fitness, strength and flexibility and can bring a positive change to our thinking. It also re-balances and uplifts our emotions.
Dru Yoga classes are renowned for their empowering and supportive atmosphere and classes aim to give students a warm inner certainty that they’re in charge of their life and health!
Other health benefits include a greater dexterity in balance, flexibility and concentration. This is complemented by a sense of well-being which arises naturally from the process of engaging in yoga.
The class is taught through group demonstrations by the tutor and may include handouts and the opportunity to participate in discussion about your practice with the tutor and the rest of the group.
By attending this course you can expect to gain a deeper understanding of the philosophy of yoga and the confidence to practice both in the class and independently.
You should avoid having a meal during the 2 hours before the class.
