Hatha Yoga › Lizzie Reumont

Hatha Yoga is the name given to all physical yoga postures and breathing techniques to prepare the body for meditation. However, hatha yoga is commonly known for yoga with an emphasis on steadiness, so expect more static poses and longer yoga pose holds. The slower pace of Hatha classes makes it suitable for beginners, however it also provides a focus for more advanced practitioners and the possibility to explore the merging of breath, mind and body. Hatha Yoga provides the basis for many other forms of yoga including ashtanga yoga, vinyasa yoga, power yoga, yin yoga and restorative yoga. You may wish to follow your practice with yoga nidra, meditation or relaxation.

  • Introduction to Body Intelligence: Living In Our Bodies03:50
    Introduction to Body Intelligence: Living In Our Bodies

    Lizzie Reumont

    A real wonder of yoga is that we learn more about our body’s innate intelligence. We learn to acquaint ourselves with how our bodies and minds feel, as we go through the day and as we go through life. We hold three sources of knowledge: the mind, the heart and the gut. But we are often disconnected from some or all of these. Body intelligence helps us to listen to the whole of our inner knowledge and use this to connect with ourselves, our world and the present moment. Learn to tap into and feel all parts of the body to create a sense of safety, presence and embodiment. Too often we move through life mindlessly, so this series of yoga classes will help you reconnect with yourself, be present and be self-compassionate so you can discover how to be receptive to what your body is telling you and rebuild the wealth of healing within the body.
