The foundation to all the physical poses in yoga. In this class you will move at a slower pace, holding each pose for 3-5 breaths or longer.
Gentle Hatha incorporates stretching, balance, and strength with breath work and meditation to create a full mind, body, and spirit experience.
This slow paced class is mostly done on the floor with postures held for 3 minutes or more to facilitate a deeper flexibility and to lengthen and stretch the softer tissues. The longer holds create a calm within the nervous system allowing for the release of stress and anxiety.
A Restorative yoga sequence will allow your body to feel property aligned, giving you more space for the breath to flow in a safe and peaceful environment. The use of props and the support of the earth allows you to let go on a much deeper level - a mind, body release that encourages healing from holding the poses for longer periods of time.
