What is it?
Hatha is a general term that encompasses all styles
of yoga that involve holding postures - or what could
be described as physical yoga. If you have done yoga
before such as Iyenga or Ashtanga, then it would have
been Hatha Yoga.
During our yoga sessions we take from a wide ranging
number of schools of practice but always with a focus
on healing and rehabilitating the body.
Most of our members train several times a week and it is important that plenty of time is taken to help the body repair after the intensity of the previous sessions. We therefore mainly look at relaxing postures and expect a slower paced stretching focussed class where we can concentrate on alignment and improving posture.
We normally start with a long
mobilisation and warming up stage, we
then work through anywhere up to 7
main postures sometimes with a
vinyasa (flowing sequence). The session
is always finished with a simple relaxing
pranyama (breathing practice).
