Using the styles of Iyengar, Ashtanga and classical yoga, Hatha classes move through a variety of poses, themes and focuses. The poses and themes will be chosen to suit those present, and aim toward a balanced body and mind: aware, powerful, and present. The pace is slower than that of a flow class, which makes Hatha classes valuable for both beginners and to experienced practitioners providing an opportunity to play with the foundation and subtleties of poses. Students are given suggestions for a range of possibilities so that they can express each pose in a way that suits and addresses how they feel. The class contains asanas (poses), pranayama (breathing practices) and meditation in order to address health and wellbeing on all levels.
