This “yin” based practice includes easy, reclined poses, using props such as blankets, blocks, cushions, and straps to allow the body to achieve each position safely and comfortably. We gently stretch and release tension from the muscles and connective tissue that surrounds the joints, increasing its elasticity, which is highly beneficial for injury prevention and joint health. Because we hold several postures for longer periods, it also restores energy, stimulates the immune system, and calms the nervous system, leaving you refreshed, rejuvenated and relaxed !

We combine traditional postures and conscious breathing with mental focus to develop mindfulness, strength, flexibility and relaxation. We invite you to kick it up a notch if you'd like, by adding options at each stage of the pose, so you can take it wherever your energy level allows.  “Hatha” can be translated as sun (ha) and moon (tha), meaning “the yoga of balance”, so you'll find this class is as dynamic as you are and leave feeling strong and resilient!
