Hatha Yoga

This form of traditional yoga is considered to be a more gentle style at a slower pace, allowing deep stretches to release stress and tension in the body while using your breath to calm the body and mind.

Hatha yoga postures are practised to align, strengthen and promote flexibility in the body and calm the mind. Breathing techniques are also integrated. You can expect an emphasis on simplicity, repetition, and ease of movement. A full range of motion is practised with standing postures, twists, backbends, forward folds, and hip openers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. IS THIS CLASS FOR ME?

Yoga is suitable for everyone and for every body type. It will suit those who prefer a more gentle challenge to stretch and tone the body, while releasing stress and tension. Classes typically start with gently warming up the body, a set of asanas (postures) which can be tailored to varying challenging levels to strengthen and stretch muscles. And finally finishing with a relaxation to bring ease and calm to body and mind with a connection back to yourself.

Q. WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

Bring a water bottle and your own mat if you prefer, or you can hire a studio mat for £1.

Q. WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE?

Please arrive 15 minutes before class so you have time to get ready and allow a prompt start.

Q. WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Cotton clothing is more suitable then stretchy synthetic fabrics, but wear what you feel most comfortable in that will allow your body to move and stretch freely. There are changing cubicles at the studio for before and after class.

Q. WHEN SHOULD I EAT?

Try not to eat a heavy meal at least two hours before class, but a light snack is fine if you need.
