Designed to align your skin, muscles and bones, and open the many channels of the body, so that energy can flow freely. Hatha is also translated as ha meaning "sun" and tha meaning "moon". This refers to the balance of active, hot, sun and receptive, cool, moon within all of us. Hatha yoga is a path towards creating balance and uniting our opposites. In our physical bodies we develop a balance of strength and stability. We also learn to balance our effort and surrender in each pose. Hatha yoga is a powerful tool for self-transformation. It asks us to bring our attention to our breath, which helps us to still the fluctuations of the mind and be more present in the unfolding of each moment.
'Our yoga practice allows us to know and trust ourselves more fully'.

Classes are mixed ability and suitable for complete beginners. Hatha yoga promotes wellbeing, incorporating healthy breathing, alignment and balanced energy flow. I invite you to 'Shine out from the inside' - courageously and skilfully exploring the boundaries of your perceived limitations.
You will leave class feeling empowered and renewed!
Kula is a Sanskrit word that can be translated as 'community', 'clan' or tribe. A sense of inclusion and belonging that can be cultivated through yogis coming together to practice yoga. The kula is considered sacred because it is a group of people who come together freely, with intention and a shared sense of purpose. In this way, the traditional idea of yoga as a personal and individual practice can be expanded to include more social aspects and experiences of connection with others as well as the self. If we harness the power of connection with loving intention, we can influence even greater positive changes in the larger community outside our yoga world.
