Hatha yoga originally refers to any style of yoga which consists of physical exercise. Here it is used to describe a more traditional type of yoga which aims to achieve a deep inner relaxation and increase of prana (life force) through asanas (physical postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), mudra (hand, eye and face gestures) and meditation. The pace of this class is slower and more restoratative. It allows the student to incorporate each asana with a deep and strong mental focus as to reconnect with the body and quiet the mind. This class is suitable for all levels.
