A gentle fitness practice of the body and mind. This class is designed for those who are new to yoga, and those with physical limitations. The use of the chair helps create stability while you can freely move your body. It is recommended to use a sturdy chair with no arm rests. You can stay seated in the chair the whole time or work with the chair using it for balance if you choose to stand. Hatha yoga was developed in India in the 15th century. It is believed that through hatha yoga one can purify the body and make it fit for meditation. Hatha comes from two words and two forces. Ha- is the active and masculine force of the sun. Tha- is the feminine and receptive energy of the moon. They join together to purify the body. Great for beginners since the pace is slow and gentle. It is easier to learn the asanas (postures), the breathing and principles of yoga. Vinyasa yoga is derived from hatha yoga and is also referred to as Ashtanga, which means dynamic, concentrating postures. There is a flow between asanas (postures) linking movement of postures to breath. This style has a positive effect on the cardiovascular system as the flowing movement heats up and stretches the muscles of the body.
