Hatha Yoga is designed to prevent illness through the body and mind, by creating balance in your life through postures, breathing and meditation.
In all classes the emphasis is on counteracting the everyday stresses placed on the body and mind and developing correct understanding and technique for practice. Modifications, adjustments and variations of postures and breathing (Pranayama) techniques are always given for students at all levels of practice.
Students usually begin with attending the Beginners General Hatha course to lay down the foundations of yoga. Following this, students can continue with attending the weekly hatha yoga classes, or for those who would like to explore a more physically intensive yoga practice, Dynamic yoga can be introduced (see below for more details).
If it's your first time at yoga, a beginners course or 1-on-1 private sessions with Sally is strongly recommended to develop a correct understanding and safe practice of yoga.
Hatha classes are open to students of all levels, from
beginner's to advanced. These classes are designed to cleanse
and nuture the body and mind through a combination of gentle
and strong asanas to improve cardio vasvular health develop,
strengh and flexibility through the body. We always conclude
with a deep relaxation to ultimately bring you into deeper
contact with your calm, relaxed Self. You may experience a
transformative effect on both the body and the mind after just
Hatha yoga also increases energy and circulation of blood and lymph, clenses/purify's internal organs, improves digestive function, can lower blood sugar levels, aids in the recovery of injury and illness, builds core strength, whilst promoting calm and stress relief.

Once strength has built through the body and the foundations
of yoga are solid, you can then attend the more challenging
dynamic hatha classes.

the class, aimed to equip students with lifelong skills to
help balance the stresses and challenges they encounter, to
further create resilient, balanced and healthy teenagers.
