The word Hatha symbolizes the union of opposites: Ha, the sun element, and Tha, the moon side. This word also refers to the physical practice component of raja yoga or royal yoga. In practising traditional postures, we will focus on finding healthy alignment & balance. And, importantly, a reverence & respect for ourselves. Sunday morning practices will be an exploration of how we can settle the busy mind while caring for our physical bodies, and how calming the mind has an equally healing effect on the body. Practicing yoga postures can open body, mind, emotions, & perspective, so this practice will be gentle, helping to invite a sense of safety & relaxation so we can take a mindful approach to getting to know body & mind.

Yin is a practice of a specific postures that are each held for 2–10 minutes. This practice allows the fascia to elongate and create space within the body. It connects body, mind and spirit through stillness and inner work. Due to the time it takes to set up, and the quality of the work- please arrive a few minutes early.
