Hatha Yoga (all levels) offers traditional yoga poses, including Sun Salutations, Downward Dog, and Warrior II. The instructor verbally guides practitioners through a series of poses, offering demonstration when appropriate. The practice begins with calming the mind and focusing on the breath. Attention is given to alignment, balance, and strength. The body is warmed up steadily. While yoga can improve flexibility, students do not have to be flexible to succeed in this class. Hatha Yoga is perfect for beginners and as well as for more experienced yogis.
All yoga classes are $11 for drop-ins or $70 for a 10-class punch card.For more info, contact Wells Therapeutics (757) 490-9488.
