What is Hatha Yoga?
Yoga is a union of our physical, mental and spiritual selves and is more than a form of exercise.  It also offers a path of practical guidelines that help you live a balanced and healthy life.  
Hatha Yoga is a style of yoga that mean willful. “Ha” meaning Sun and “
tha” meaning Moon suggests the union of opposites.  With Hatha Yoga we combine physical postures, breathing exercises and mindful awareness to help live a healthy life.

Namaste is a form of Hello or goodbye and can be used in a formal or informal setting with friends or strangers.  When saying Namaste bring both hands together by the heart center, close the eyes and gently bow down.  “The light in me sees the light in you”

What is Savasana or Corpse Pose?
All my classes end in Savasana.  Doing a corpse pose ends our practice by allowing our body and mind to relax.  It can be one of the most challenging poses since it requires one to let go of the day and focus on the breath.  Savasana is useful at the beginning of a practice too in preparation for upcoming postures.

What is Pranayama?
The gentle rhythm of our breath is our constant companion since the day we were born.  By learning to observe and control our breath we can influence our emotional state and concentrate on the way energy moves in our bodies.  Pranayama is about breath control and a basic part of a yoga practice.

What is the significance of my logo?
In yoga, our bodies have energy centers known as chakras.  Each chakra represents a different area of the body from the base of the spinal cord to the crown of the head.The green Chakra (Anahata) is reflective of our heart center and lungs.  This chakra points forward and is associated with ambition, hope, love and balance.  It is through Anahata that we love beyond ourselves and connect at a physical, mental and emotional level.
