Hatha is most often used to describe gentle, basic yoga classes with no flow between poses. Expect a slower-paced stretching class with some basic pranayama breathing exercises and seated meditation at the end.
Hatha classes are a good place to learn beginners’ poses, relaxation techniques, and become comfortable with yoga. The Yoga postures and breathing techniques purify the physical body.
One of the most immediate health benefits of practicing Hatha yoga poses is a feeling of calm; when you focus on your yoga practice, you may focus less on your worries or woes. Yoga can increase your flexibility, range of motion and strength as well as enhance your balance, leaving you with a higher fitness level and reduced risk of injuries.
Saturdays, 9:00–10:00 a.m.
We can all benefit from organic gardening. It is widely recognized that regular contact with plants, animals, and the natural environment can improve our physical health and mental well-being. When we grow food and flowers, we are engaging with the natural world at a pace that provides a welcome antidote to the stresses of modern life. Such activities can relieve the symptoms of serious illnesses, prevent the development of some conditions, and introduce people to a way of life that can help them to improve their well-being in the longer term.
Saturdays, 10:30–11:30 a.m.
