Every class ends with relaxation (savasana) and 3 OM.

about hatha yoga

Yoga is a sophisticated system of postures, breathing and meditation that challenges your mind and body, bringing you back into yourself. You may achieve radiant physical health, mental clarity and peace of mind through mindful practice of asana (postures), pranayama (breath) and dyana (meditation). These practices all fall under the umbrella of 'hatha' yoga. Hatha yoga has many teachers and forms which vary in focus and the sequencing of postures. There are over 2000 hatha yoga postures with many variations, which work to improve circulation in all of the body's systems and encourage proper alignment.

The ancient teachings were originally passed from guru to student through one on one teaching. In the past 100 years, yoga has transformed from a mysterious practice to a mainstream activity with millions of students around the world. As western practitioners, yoga is a puzzle for us to unfold as we move forwards into awareness and self discovery. Balance, flexibility, strength, clarity and grounding are some of the effects of continuous yoga practice, but the calm and centred feeling after a yoga class is indefinable and should remain so , as each of us sees our self anew, no two experiences alike.

This ancient practice is built around the science of the body, and an intelligent approach is necessary to fully understand the scope and depth of yoga. By bringing the mind back into the senses of the body, we find that connection to the present moment, bringing us fully into the here and now. By being aware and keeping the mind focused on the breath and posture, we can find freedom and flexibility in the spine which leads us to freedom and flexibility of the mind.

The exploration of poses from an individual perspective, rather than adhering to right or wrong definitions within a pose, allows you to work at your own level, go deeper and build awareness. The same approach applies to the spiritual connection within each of us. Yoga philosophy subscribes to no particular belief system and therefore nourishes us each differently as we bring our own unique ideas into the practice. The quiet time allowed for spiritual connection during a yoga practice is a welcome and renewing experience on our spiritual path.

The building of community and support for each other is also a big part of a yoga practice, nurturing each of us as we delve into ourselves and discover our potential. Find your inner strength through yoga practice, take time to rejuvenate and open your spirit to the fullness and joy of living!



meditation

There is no weekly meditation class on our schedule currently.

My meditation classes are for all level of meditators. I firmly believe that practice is the heart of any exploration into meditation. Although it may seem uncertain in the beginning of your practice I encourage you to sit with the confusion, ask questions and see what you discover.

The meditation I practice and teach is in the vipassana tradition which means Insight. This is a method that focuses on awareness of our body and breath creating compassion for ourselves at every moment. We practice mindfulness by focusing on the in-breath and out-breath allowing awareness of any other thoughts and experiences. We are attentive to a deepening experience of truth, love and peace. Only through consistent and dedicated practice can we gain insight into ourselves.
