Description

Gentle Hatha Yoga classes follow a well developed themed structure.  

The start of the class is used as a time to focus on the practice ahead and let the breath settle. Creating a connection between the mind and body.

This is followed by a series of intelligently sequenced warmup asanas (postures). Building into more challenging asanas sequence, which will deepen the breath and warm the blood.  Variations on Sun Salutations (Vinyasa) are used to strengthen, test balance and endurance, increase mobility and flexibility, this will build heat into the body. Preparatory poses are used to support any peak pose.  Finally floor based asanas are used to cool the body down and bring equilibrium to the mind, before a restorative final phase.
