Mon 6.45pm Stretch & Salute
Tues 9.30am Rejuvenate Yoga
Fri 11am Indoor/Outdoor Yoga
Hatha is a general category that includes most yoga styles. It is founded on an old classical system that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises) which help bring peace to the mind and body, designed originally to prepare one for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation.
Hatha is primarily a gentle, slow style. It's great for beginners or students who prefer a more relaxed practice, where you will hold poses longer.
Alongside the classical yoga poses, including seated and standing postures, sun/moon salutations and floor work, you will experience some energising flowing sections, breathwork and relaxation to finish.
In these small, friendly classes everyone is invited to listen to their own unique body and adapt poses to suit them (particularly if carrying an injury) or simply rest.
A typical class runs for 60 mins to enable you to settle at the start of the practice and end in a chilled savasana.
Over the summer we hold classes in the peaceful garden on Friday mornings. These will continue outside or indoors, depending on the weather.
Stay for a cuppa/glass of something afterwards if you have time.
Hopefully you will leave nicely stretched and relaxed, with a sense of joy and connection to yourself and others.
"I don't know what you put in your rejuvenating class but I've been like a thing possessed again today, and even sorted out my socks and knicker drawer"
"If I could I would book onto every class! I have never felt so welcomed onto any other class. Ann is so calming and knowledgeable. Every class is different and always has a thoughtful twist.
I have met some great people and have learnt so much about the yoga practice. There is something for everyone no matter what level of yogini you are. Oh and the cake treats post class that Graham bakes up are always super tasty. A lovely couple that are always welcoming and deliver an experience not just a class!"
