Yoga & Self Care with Essential Oils Retreat
Time & Location
About The Event
What is Hatha Yoga?
'Ha' is Sanskrit for sun and 'tha' is for moon, Hatha yoga is therefore a union of opposites. In our Hatha yoga classes we will hold and explore certain yoga poses and their therapeutic benefits. (Often completing one yoga pose and then its counter pose). Hatha yoga is designed to help us bring pairs of opposites together in our hearts, minds, and bodies for the purpose of discovering something deeper about ourselves.
