MOVING INTO STILLNESS WITH HATHA YOGA
The asanas (postures) focus on balancing, strengthening or stimulating the different systems of the body, such as: balancing the endocrine (hormone) system, strengthening the cardio vascular and respiratory systems, stimulating the immune and lymphatic systems and building strength in the muscles and to increase flexibility. Inversions and balances help with stability, strength, self confidence and feelings of well being.
Yoga helps with posture and core strength. The class includes breathing awareness practices, pranayama, which help with mindfulness, being in the present and connecting to calm feelings. Meditation is practiced throughout the term.The class concludes with time for relaxation.

Hatha Yoga has been proven to be a stress relieving system and can assist the healing process on many different levels.
Come with an open mind, be prepared to have a laugh, enjoy some challenges, release your cares and responsibilities for a short time and find those special, so peaceful moments, as we move into stillness through yoga.

ALTERNATE NOSTRIL BREATHING / NADI SHODHAN demonstration Copy & Paste: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xbbr6Udg1UA
Benefits of Nadi Shodhan Pranayama (Alternate Nostril Breathing) An excellent breathing technique to calm and centre the mind. • Our mind has a tendency to keep regretting or glorifying the past and getting anxious about the future. Nadi Shodhan pranayama helps to bring the mind back to the present moment. • Works therapeutically for most circulatory and respiratory problems. • Helps with headache • Helps insomnia and sleeping problems • Releases accumulated stress in the mind and body effectively and relaxes it. • Helps harmonize the left and right hemispheres of the brain, which correlate to the logical and emotional sides of our personality. • Helps purify and balance the nadis, the subtle energy channels, thereby ensuring smooth flow of prana (life force) through the body. • Maintains body temperature.
