Hatha Yoga › Rakhee Jasani

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.

    Yoga for Beginners: Go Slow

    Rakhee Jasani

    The focus for this hatha yoga class, the next in our beginners yoga course, is on finding a sense of ease in our practice. Class starts with breath work and gentle seated stretches. After flowing through a mindfully paced sun salutation B, the sequence further explores familiar poses. Often, when working through balancing and strengthening poses, we find areas of the body gripping. Therefore, we experiment with different hand and food placements to see if there is a more easeful way of moving and holding poses. Sometimes, when the body relaxes it can find more endurance and comfort. Class ends with a long constructive rest and savasana.
