Hatha Yoga is a simple way to experience the power of balance in the world around us and within our physical being. Building strength and toning the soft tissue. Using many postures that progress from a warm up through to more challenging static poses to a warm down and a final relaxation. The result is a body that yields effortlessly to the stillness of a deep meditation and a mind that remains flexible in the face of increasing pressure. Today there are many styles of Hatha Yoga and there are even more teachers who each bring a unique expression to their classes while still honouring the tradition and roots of the practice.
