Hatha Yoga

The word Yoga means to ‘yolk’ or ‘bind’. Yoga is about harmony of body, mind and spirit. On a deeper level it can be about revealing our true connection to mother nature and the universal consciousness.

Hatha Yoga refers to a set of physical exercises known as postures or asanas. This is the Yoga that most of us are most familiar with in the western world. The Yoga poses are designed to unblock energy channels in the body and let energy flow freely. Hatha Yoga is a powerful tool for physical and mental transformation. It is different from other forms of exercise because the movements in the body are connected to the breath, and this in turn helps to quieten the fluctuations of the mind. It then becomes like a moving meditation.

Candlelight Monday night Yoga in Sutton

There are many different styles of Hatha Yoga. This class has a slow flow style with a faster pace then many gentler Hatha classes but it is not as fast or as physically challenging as a Vinyasa flow class and we spend more time holding and exploring each pose then some other styles. There is a very strong emphasis on connecting the the breath in each pose. Safety and alignment is also paramount. Each class  includes breathing techniques and/or deep relaxation.

This class is mixed level and intermediate.

For complete beginners I run a Complete Beginners Yoga Series on Wednesday evenings four times a year. This 5 week course will give a general over view of what Yoga is all about and break down the main yoga poses (asanas), breathing exercises (pranayama) and meditation/relaxation found in most yoga classes, for complete beginners, giving them a solid and safe foundation from right from the beginning. They can then go on to join the Monday evening class when they finish The Complete Beginners Yoga Series

Next course start dates:

Monday Night Yoga from 6th January 2020 @ 8.30pm

Complete Beginners Yoga Series from 5th February 2020 @ 8.30pm
