Hatha yoga is the most widely practiced form of yoga in America. It is the branch of yoga which concentrates on physical health and mental well-being. Hatha yoga uses bodily postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation (dyana) with the goal of bringing about a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind. There are nearly 200 hatha yoga postures, with hundreds of variations, which work to make the spine supple and to promote circulation in all the organs, glands, and tissues. Hatha yoga postures also stretch and align the body, promoting balance and flexibility.
What to wear.
For your comfort wear clothing that somewhat forms to the body and moves with you. You may wish to wear layers as your body temperature will likely change during practice. Warming during the more active phases and cooling during the restful phases.
You contribute to the experience.
Please refrain from wearing perfume or other strong scents to class. Turn-off cell phones or make them completely silent (this includes no vibration). Remove shoes in the vestibule before entering the practice area. If you use a studio mat, please use the wipes provided to clean it before returning it to the rack. Blankets should be folded neatly when returned to the rack. Be on time to class.
You are responsible to make your teacher aware of any medical conditions or physical concerns you may have in general and on the day of your class. Your teacher will offer guidance and accommodations based on this knowledge. It is your responsibility to keep yourself safe and injury free. Use your own wisdom and knowledge of your body to make adjustments during your practice. This is YOUR practice and is intended to benefit you and address your particular needs. You always have a choice. You decide what’s right for you.
Due to the limited schedule I do not offer make-ups for classes you choose to miss. Refunds will not be offered. The single class “Drop-in” rate is $20.00.
