Open/Intermediate level : There are various interpretations of hatha yoga. My personal inspiration is that of the moon and the sun. We approach yoga practice holistically, we are complex beings, a sum of different elements, with our "moons" and emotional fluctuations (tha) but also with spirit, light, stability (ha). A pair of almost opposite energies and yet, one cannot exist without the other...and we seek their balance. How? Our anchor is the breath, to bring us back and connect us. With us, and with what we need , with what we have forgotten. The body is present, intelligent, and knows. It becomes the visible and tangible intermediary that attracts mind and emotion, and like satellites leaves them in their effortless movement, yet with a clear point of reference. The breath that nourishes, regulates, attunes and is always strong and bright, like the Sun. Measuring time now with breaths, we listen to the "inside" as an integral part of any "outside". We float in a practice of flow and movement with a willingness to explore our limits and play, respecting the specificity of each body and mind.

This is an intermediate level class, however variations are given for more beginner and advanced students. The Thursday class is a little more advanced.
