Hatha Yoga Course

Tutor: Jude Murray
Location: Evolution Arts, 2 Sillwood Terrace, Brighton BN1 2LR
Next start date: Monday 15 January 2018

 

This course will help build greater awareness, strength and balance, relaxation and ease of movement and embodied range through the practice of Hatha yoga postures, breathing exercises, relaxation, meditation, gentle seasonal energy work and modern Embodied Yoga Principles.

What does this course cover?

In this practice we will start from the ground up, exploring our relationship with gravity and our breath,  and  moving into ways of moving and being using asana – the yoga postures  -  as a way of exploring our bodies . Asanas are designed to move and stretch the body in all planes – to maintain ease of movement, strength, range and flexibility. Using elements of Embodied Yoga Principles, we take an approach to  practising yoga postures  that is about taking the lessons learned in yoga off the mat, and into life. Likewise, the practices of breathing and relaxation are excellent ways of managing the stress and pressures of every day life and of building strength, resilience and ease. The class will offer a different focus each week to help gently attune bodies and minds to the shifting energy of the seasons. This way of practising yoga is open and accessible to all and offers layered activities, including adaptations,  for all levels of experience and ability.
