This class lead by Erin is a mix of the Yin and Yang. Starting with Gentle Hatha poses to stretch and get the energy moving and the transitioning onto the mat for the Yin section then ending with relaxation.
Hatha a Balance of Effort and Ease
The word “hatha” can be translated two ways: as “willful” or “forceful,” which represents the physical movement of the body into various postures that activate the energy channels, fluids, muscles, bones and tissues of the body or the yoga of activity, and as “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha), the yoga of balance. The sun symbolizes the light, hot, active and yang masculine energies, while the moon symbolizes the dark, cold, receptive, and Yin feminine energies.
This class will work the equal and opposing aspects of ourselves, to create a sense of balance at the center of our being. Emphasis will be on building a strong foundation with breath, posture and balance.
A Hatha practice encourages flexibility, relaxation and a mind body connection reducing physical and mental stress in the body while building strength and confidence with ease
