About this class

PLEASE ENSURE BEFORE BOOKING THIS CLASS THAT YOU READ ALL THE DETAILS BELOW TO THE END. YOU MUST DISCLOSE ANY MEDICAL CONDITIONS YOU HAVE OR INJURIES AT THE TIME OF BOOKING IN THE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION BOX BELOW.

Join us at the RR hideout in cleadon for 60 minute hatha yoga flow. Suitable for all levels as adaptions are given throughout. The practice involves breath, body, and mind connections through breathing, yoga poses, and meditation.

Hatha is considered a gentle yoga that focuses on static poses and is great for beginners. However, even though it is gentle, it can still be physically and mentally challenging.

Classes typically start with a gentle warm-up, advance to more physical poses, and end with a short period of relaxation.

Breathing: Most hatha yoga classes start with a period of focus on your breath or pranayama. As we go through the poses, we will continue to remind you to focus on your breath.

Poses: Yoga poses, also called postures or asanas, are a series of movements that help improve balance, flexibility, and strength. Poses range in difficulty from laying flat on the floor to physically challenging positions. If at any time during your class, a pose is too difficult, we will provide you with a modified posture.

Meditation/relaxation: Most classes end with a short period of meditation or relaxation. During this period of quiet reflection, we may ask you to lie on your back and may cover you with a blanket. We will take you through a visualisation or breathing exercise.
