Wendy's Hatha Yoga Classes
Wendy's yoga classes are taking a new direction, mirroring an evolution taking currently taking place in the yoga world towards functional and natural movement. Functional movements have been defined as beneficial movements done with whole-body alignment that promote optimal mobility, stability, and longevity. Wendy's classes, while very active, are also suitable for beginners willing to challenge themselves.
Alex's Gentle Hatha Classes
These classes, taught by Alex, are slow paced and deeply relaxing. The postures range from simple to complex, with full permission to do less. The emphasis is on breath and body awareness. We learn to listen to our body in a new way, honour its limitations and learn from it. Even though the approach is gentle, we will stretch and strengthen, and work toward improved flexibility and balance, mental clarity and emotional state of peace.
These classes are recommended for students interested in developing a home practice or for those with health challenges such as back pain, sports injury, chronic fatigue or headaches.
