Enrollment limited. Explore the postures (asanas) and breathing practices (pranayama) of hatha yoga, designed to strengthen the cardiovascular system and stimulate energy centers (chakras) in the body. Students progress through a series of movements and exercises that promote flexibility and muscle tone in all areas of the body. Emphasis is placed on developing awareness of the spine and proper breathing, which supplies the body with greater amounts of oxygen than it normally receives, allowing the muscles to work more efficiently and resulting in improved circulation and increased stamina and vitality. Daily practice is encouraged. Wear leotard and footless tights or other appropriate comfortable clothing. No shoes are worn in class.
