each session is different and there is scope for most people interested in
Each person’s needs will be taken into account; *adapting the

It is a good idea to consider bringing your own mat if you have one, and a rug if you can, otherwise we have a few spare mats & rugs you can borrow if you’re trying it out for the first time.
What is it?
“Hatha” yoga, (Ha=Sun Tha = Moon,) is an umbrella term,
which encompasses many types of asana (postural) yoga. In this session we look
at these methods and techniques in a holistic way, with breath and focus on the
movements of the spine being at the forefront of the practice.
What to wear?
Either loose natural fabrics, or athletic leggings/top, it
really is up to you, you know your body well; it is a good idea to have
something you can stretch well in top to toe.
This practice can help to create deeper flexibility both
physically and mentally. Yoga is a science of integration, to help not just the
body, but also the mind and to nourish the spirit.
It is a well established class which has been running for a
long time, so there is a fun camaraderie within the group of individuals
attending regularly, they are encouraging and warm, happily making room for
drop in visitors and new regular attendees.
