Hatha Yoga is a mindful movement practice that has a powerfully positive impact on your wellbeing.

It is a combination of asana (physical postures), pranayama (breathing practices) and yoga nidra (deep relaxation).

It is suitable for people of a range of levels of fitness, of many different ages, and for beginners or experienced students.

Hatha Yoga has its roots in ancient India over 2500 years ago. This long history is a testament to the deep intelligence and positive effects of the tradition.

In its original form, yoga is an extensive system of personal development, with spiritual enlightenment as its ultimate goal. From this system we choose the practices most beneficial to us and relevant to our modern lives.
