Traditional Hatha yoga is taught keeping in mind the ability and physical limitations of every person. The word "yoga" means union, a union of mind, body and spirit. The word "Hatha" is a blend of two words: "ha" meaning sun or the masculine aspects-active, hot- and "tha" meaning moon or the feminine aspect-cool, receptive-within each of us. Hatha yoga is the path to create balance and equanimity.
Far from being a physical practice, when practiced regularly, yoga is a personal journey for inner transformation. Small-sized classes allow you work at your own pace, using modifications as needed, and develop your practice in your own time.
Pranayama, or breathwork is practiced in each class. Practicing breathwork has a very calming effect on the nervous system and brings about deep relaxation to the mind. Practicing Yoga and Pranayama has tremendous physical and mental benefits, as it stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system.
Mindfulness Meditation is about embracing the present moment with kind awareness, and without any judgements. It is taught in a 9 week long program where we learn how to practice mindfulness formally and informally .We learn how to witness our thoughts, without getting caught up in the story. We reflect on our thoughts and habitual patterns, learn how to address difficult emotions when they arise, how to manage stress and anxiety and much more. When we learn to embrace what is present, whether pleasant or unpleasant, we open up to the fullness of our lives.
