Classical Yoga with Lanta
This hatha yoga class begins with a brief sharing of yoga philosophy which is interwoven throughout the class, allowing the student to understand the holistic science of yoga and bring this awareness into their everyday lives. Through the combination of asana (physical postures) and pranayama (breath work), we prepare the body for the deeper spiritual practice of meditation.
Classical Yoga Flow with Sheila
This gentle form of Hatha Yoga is accessible to all. Although Yoga is best known for its postures, this is only a small part of Yoga. By applying awareness to our practice of postures, Yoga becomes more than just physical exercise. It becomes a process of personal growth and self-discovery. By making Yoga philosophy applicable to real life in today’s world, students leave class with an effective understanding of what it means to be healthy, to relax, to live in the full awareness of each moment and to fully enjoy their lives.
