Hatha Yoga two days a week

What do I learn in the hatha yoga practice?

In the hatha yoga practice you learn classical physical postures, that is, asanas, as well as a technique for deep relaxation. In addition, you have an opportunity to learn and practice meditation. The purpose of hatha yoga is to use yoga asanas and focusing of the mind to tune us with certain specific energies. With the help of the practice you can strengthen and refine a large number of effects and properties within yourself, such as the vitality of the body, self-confidence, the capacity to relate to others in a loving way, and the brightness of your mind and focusing ability.

Each practice includes warm-up exercises, yoga asanas, deep relaxation and meditation. The yoga asanas range from soft and calming ones to asanas that are more dynamic and energizing. The practice does not require previous experience from yoga, and the individuality of each participant is taken into account for. The yoga practice is concluded with a profound deep relaxation, which will further strengthen the effects of the yoga postures. The relaxation of the body generates charges our being both physically and psychically.
