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. 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.
Do you need to bring anything?
Please wear comfortable clothes that allow free movement. You must bring your own yoga mat and a blanket or extra layer of clothing to keep you warm during meditation.
Are there any additional costs?
