This non-heated class involves controlled, steady movements with a focus on breath. Each posture (asana) has various options and variations. Students can work with what feels challenging, but not strained. Working with the concepts of shtira and sukha, students come to embody the effects of prana and asana to reach stillness in the mind.
Hatha teacher, Lou, is half way through a two-year training course with Yoga Scotland – the governing body for yoga in Scotland.
We welcome new students as we explore Hatha together. Students interested in yogic philosophy will be offered small seeds of wisdom from which to grow their understanding:
The word hatha belongs to the concept that we live in an energy field; energy is behind all action. The energy field that we live in normally extends four fingers-breadth (anglua) beyond the body and it is possible also in a healthy person to achieve a situation in which the energy is concentrated inside the body. In an unhealthy person, the energy dissipates further. There are blockages in an unhealthy person that make it impossible to concentrate one’s energy properly, and techniques are used to open the channels and improve the flow of energy.
