Hatha Yoga Classes

A typical Hatha yoga class with Amelia will include quiet sitting, a mindful 5 minutes to ‘check in’ with the breath, the body and the mind. Following with Jattis (warm ups), Kriya (movement with the breath) Asana (physical postures) and Pranayama (breath-work) Finally a peaceful Savasana (relaxation) will conclude the session.

Amelia may also include Mindfulness and Meditation tools to ‘take home’ and practice each day. Her classes are flowing and inclusive, and incorporate a balance between strong and restful. Making space for each student to move in a way that is right for their individual level of ability and energy on any given day.

What is Hatha Yoga?

Hatha is also translated as ha meaning “sun” and tha meaning “moon.” This refers to the balance of masculine aspects—active, hot, sun—and feminine aspects—receptive, cool, moon—within all of us. Hatha yoga is a path toward creating balance and uniting opposites.

Yoga can help you to create more balance and harmony in your daily life. A regular practice supports strength, flexibility, balance and coordination. It promotes a strong immune system, a healthy digestive system and brings the nervous system into balance, reducing stress and promoting a natural and restful sleep.

Yoga & Mindfulness

‘Yoga is mindfulness in movement. Through being aware of your sensations, breathing, thoughts and emotions, you bring mindfulness to your practice. Using yoga to develop mindfulness increases the likelihood that you are mindful whenever you move, and so helps mindfulness to become part of your life and being rather than just a technique. I highly recommend yoga as a mindfulness practice.’
