Hatha Basics

Hatha Basics is a class that you will get a gentle introduction to the most basic yoga postures. Hatha is most often used to describe gentle, basic yoga classes that emphasize static postures compared to styles with more movement or flow. Expect a slower-paced stretching-focused class with some basic breathing exercises (pranayama) and perhaps a seated meditation at the end. Hatha basics are an excellent place to work on your alignment, learn relaxation techniques, and become comfortable with doing yoga while building strength and flexibility.
