all experience welcome:
all levels of experience in yoga are welcome.
hatha classes hold poses passively for about 5 breaths, you will have time to find your correct alignment in that position and connect with you breath.
deep muscular relaxation:
holding the poses for a few deep exhales encourages the release of subtle 'holding', in time we learn to relax completely into the pose.
release fascia & improve joint mobility:
getting deeper into the poses aids in releasing the fascia as well as joint mobility.
in working with the breath we prime the body by using the biofeedback that deep breathing provides. it draws you into the now, and sends a physical message to the body that it can be at ease, that stressors aren't here/now.
