DEEP STRETCH HATHA - L1
Inspired by Classical Hatha Yoga, Deep Stretch Hatha Yoga turns the focus from the external body to the internal body, spending time in each pose to become aware of the subtle adjustments and nuances of the pose. Sometimes the extra time requires increased endurance and strength, sometimes it requires deeper release and stretch. Because of the intensity of longer holds, modifications are provided for students of all levels to experience a pose to the fullest extent of their unique body. Classes end with a deep meditative experience. This class is great for both beginners and advanced practitioners, and modifications are provided for all levels. It is an excellent class for people who wish to work on specific muscle areas in the hips, legs, and back to increase range of motion and to allow for deeper stretching and reduction of injury.
