Hatha
Uses postures (asanas) and stretches in combination with the breath (pranayama) and meditation techniques to develop flexibility and relaxation. There are many styles of Hatha Yoga. Some use a specific series of postures; others use a flow of movements, while some may use props such as blocks or belts to assist a posture or maximize a stretch. All styles of Hatha Yoga, however, encourage personal alignment of your body and bring balance, strength, and calmness to you, the practitioner. Our Hatha Yoga classes are based on the classic and ancient practices with care and attention given to many different layers of yoga.
The word hatha is Sanskrit and is composed of two words, “ha” and “tha”. “Ha” means sun, which represents warm masculine energy and strength. “Tha” means moon and represents the calm cooling feminine energy. The focus of Hatha Yoga is to merge these energies and unite the body, mind and spirit for health and well-being.
Hatha Flow
Hatha Flow brings balance, strength, and a sense of well-being to the practitioner and is a holistic yogic path including: postures (asana), breathing (pranayama), and meditation. This style allows for more variety, this class may build heat, and be meditative at the same time.
While using both the poses and the pace of regular Hatha classes, these classes sequence those poses differently and aim to keep the body moving with breath.
Hatha Foundations
A methodical practice focusing on the principles of breath awareness and alignment. Breaking down individual aspects of pranayama, asana and meditation into building blocks that will create the foundation of a sustainable stable and well-rounded yoga sadhana (practice). This class is suitable for beginners as well as more experienced students.
Hatha HypnoZen
Hypnosis goes back over 2000 years where it was practiced in ancient Egyptian sleep temples. All hypnosis is self­hypnosis; it is much like deep meditation, EXCEPT that the thoughts are consciously directed towards a positive intent. Hypnosis heals on a profoundly deep level.
Your HypnoZenYoga class will help you feel rested, confident, uplifted and powerful. True cellular healing and DNA transformation takes place in the space between the breath; the still point. The exciting combination of hypnosis and yoga trains the brain to go into the deeply healing state of theta, where the mind and body meet; the Zen space of true coherence and healing.
This transformative class of discovery and new techniques will leave you amazed at how flexible your brain and body really are. Learn to get out of your limbic brain, and free up your thinking, breathe and move through asana and live in the magic of the prefrontal cortex.
