Hatha Yoga

October 3, 2017 @ 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm

Beginning May 9
6:00 – 7:15PM
Instructor: Monica Breen
Drop in Class: $12
$40 for 4 classes (must be used for four consecutive classes, no exceptions)

Please arrive on time as the doors lock at the beginning of class.

Please bring your own yoga mat and a hand towel. You should dress in loose fitting layers for your own comfort. You are also encouraged to hydrate before and after class – but if you feel it is necessary to drink during class bring a refillable water bottle.

Price for a drop in class is $12, however, to ensure regularity and frequency, you are encouraged to purchase a package of 4 classes for $40. The 4 classes must be used consecutively.

Pricing encourages practice for four consecutive weeks. Consistency brings assimilation and an understanding of the yoga. In other words, yoga’s benefits come with regular practice, and more will be gained if done with regularity and frequency.

Hatha Yoga concentrates on physical health and mental well-being. The goal of Hatha Yoga is to bring about a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind, by using bodily postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation (dyana).

Class will start with centering, breath development and “warm-up” postures to set the foundations for the practice. Individuals will then be guided through a series of interconnected standing, seated and floor postures. Classes may often include a short meditation and/or traditional, yoga breathing exercises (pranayama).

The Hatha Yoga class is designed to present some challenges in order to help individuals find physical, emotional and mental advancement – but individuals will be encouraged to only engage in those challenges that feel safe and appropriate. As often as possible, modifications will be explained so that many different types of people may develop a safe and enjoyable practice. The class is meant to be accessible for a wide variety of people and inclusive of almost anyone who wishes to practice yoga.
