A 6 week course of Hatha yoga. We will be working on Surya Namaskar, also known as sun salutation, for our main warm up. We will explore different yoga asanas, which are the postures, throughout the sessions. We will also do some pranayama, breathing techniques to assist relaxation. The sessions always start and end with a guided relaxation and hopefully by the end of the class you will feel more relaxed.
