Hatha is a combination of two words Ham and Tham.
Ham means sun, right, masculine and represents the physical force, the power of action. Tham means moon, left, feminine and represents the mental force, the intuition and the inspiration. The work of the Hatha aims to harmonise these two aspects of our being so that our power of action is put at the service of our convictions.
The word Yoga comes from the Sanskrit root Yui, which means to join, integrate and unite. Yogis believe that each individual soul is part of the universe and that each individual’s purpose in life is to experience oneness with the universe.
On a more practical level, Yoga is a means of balancing and harmonising the body, mind and soul. Finding a balance within oneself and a unity with the universe.
In my classes I teach traditional Hatha yoga, which aims to achieve an increase of prana (life force) and a deep inner relaxation.
I combine asanas (physical postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), mudra (hand, eye and face gestures) relaxation and meditation. The pace of the class can vary from more fluid and dynamic to a soft and slow-paced rhythm.
As my classes are suitable for all levels I like to offer plenty of options and I emphasize the importance of feeling good in one’s own body and doing what one can on that particular day. Every day is different and so is each body. We respect it, we listen to it and we enjoy the path.
So, if you’re ready to become the happiest and healthiest version of yourself, book your spot and join the practice. I can’t wait to see your smiling face after this journey.
