SATTVA HATHA YOGA
Balanced and Mindful Yoga
Classes are taught in the Hatha Yoga style using Vinyasa (sequencing) for posture work.
Classes are medium paced, and incorporate a full breath led practice which is slow to medium paced, dependent on the demands of the group / client, followed by a meditation / relaxation.
The primary objective is for the Yoga practice to centre, ground and bring balance to both mind and body.
All classes focus on practicing mindfully and to assist in forming an intimate connection with “self”.
Classes are suitable for all abilities, modifications can be given for all asanas (postures).
