At The Organic community we offer beginner, intermediate and advanced classes.
At the Organic Community we offer a variety of classes including.......
Hatha yoga is the most common form of yoga practiced. Hatha yoga was one of the first styles of physical yoga to develop. The word Hatha is formed from two words "ha" sun , solar pranic energy force within the body and "tha" the moon, lunar energy within the body. Hatha is the practice of balancing these two forms of energy.
In hatha yoga we take time to hold poses in order to align and calm the body, mind and spirit
Hatha is an excellent class in order to increase flexibility, mindfulness, decrease stress and increase awareness within our body.
A variety of asanas may also be performed within a hatha class.
Hatha classes cater to beginner and intermediate yogis but that said are essential in providing balance when more physical styles of yoga are practiced.
Yin Yoga is a slow style of yoga that generally consists of floor based asanas which are held for longer periods of time (between 2-5 minutes).
Yin style yoga is a gentle practice with slow moments with the aim to become still within practice.
Yin targets deep layers of the body, such as tendons, fascia and ligaments.
Yin is a peaceful style of yoga promoting stillness, mindfulness, flexibility, joint mobility and circulation.
Meditation is the practice of focused awareness and attention. Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years and there are many different techniques and ways a individual can meditate.
Mediation practices keeping the mind within the present moment and engaged within our life this ultimately helps us change perspective and improves our outlook.
One of the original aims and purposes of yoga is to be one with mind, body and nature in order to reach a state of higher state of meditation.
At the organic community each yoga class has an optional 10 minute meditation session. We are also looking to include 30 minute meditation sessions on our time table.
