Guest

We often invite a number of Guest teachers to make our timetable more varied and get a chance to experience meeting and practicing with new exciting people. Look out for special announcements. 


Guest instructs the following:
  • Hatha Yoga - 60 min

  • Hatha yoga style incorporates a series of isolated / static postures that are held for between 30sec and 3mins with rests in between. This style of class always incorporates deep relaxation and breathing exercises in addition to the practice of yoga asanas / postures. The slower pace also allows for a more concentrated focus of proper body alignment in each pose. This is an excellent opportunity to become familiar with the traditional postures that are used in a more fluid Vinyasa class.
    This class is held in English, most of our teachers do speak some French, don't hesitate to ask for help understanding.
