Hatha Flow

YOGA CLASSES

HATHA with flow sequences

pranayana and relaxation - Private & Group Lessons


All our classes are open to all.  Whether you are a beginner or you've been practising for years it is wise to approach every class as if it were your first, leave your ego at the door and revel in the ‘beginners’ mindset’.


Whilst in class always exercise your ‘yogis choice’, your inner wisdom and honest judgement about whether you are pushing yourself too much into the realms of ‘ego yoga’.


Please wear loose comfortable layers and be prepared to work in bare feet.  Also ensure that you complete and keep the Health Waiver form updated bringing any health issues to our attention.


Introduction to the Class

The term Hatha Yoga appears in the ancient texts and refers to the original over arching practice of physical yoga postures or ‘asana’.  Specific schools of yoga including Bikram (hot yoga) Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Iyengar, Forrest and Power Yoga etc, amongst others, flow from this single root.  These forms have slightly different emphasis.


The word “hatha” has many translations but literally means  “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha) and describes the yoga of balance opposites to find ‘the middle path’.  It translates as “willful” or “forceful,” relating to its supporting and ancient philosophy which encourages regular practise.  For further reading on this go to the Treats section.


  • Sun salutations and mini ‘vinyasas’ or repeated movements appear in this practice.
  • A good way take attention away from external distractions and concerns thereby reducing life stressors.
  • Attention to alignment makes this practice friendly for those with ankle, knee, wrist or shoulder issues
  • Focus on strength, openess, stillness, awareness and breath
  • A variety of props may be used

WHAT IS HATHA YOGA?


Hatha yoga is the branch of yoga which concentrates on physical health and mental well-being. Hatha yoga uses bodily postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation (dyana) with the goal of bringing about a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind.


The roots of yoga are very old and although not a religion, yogic philosophy displays a sympathetic overlap within diverse cultural spiritual practices as Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Daoism, Sufism and Christianity.


The Hatha yoga practice incorporates exercises for a fit mind (raja yoga) and postures for a body (asana), both are achieved through the alchemy of breathing techniques.


With breath-centred movement and relaxation, classes can strengthen, stretch and tone which helps with balance and coordination, they can also help improve sleep quality, mood, energy levels and digestion.


There are nearly 200 hatha yoga postures, with hundreds of variations, which work to make the spine supple and to promote circulation.


With regular practice Hatha yoga promotes total wellbeing of body and mind helping to resolve the stresses of modern life.  In yoga we learn to respond considerately to life’s twists and turns rather than reacting fiercely to every day ups and downs.
