Hatha Yoga (60 mins) | Mon-Fri @ 7.15AM; Mon-Thurs @ 6PM; Sun @ 4.30PM
The Shakti foundations is a hatha yoga class. It is a beginner’s friendly yoga for the novice as well as for the more seasoned practitioner. Hatha yoga is the overarching umbrella of yoga that encompasses most of the traditional styles. It is translated to “willful” or “forceful” in Sanskrit. Hatha yoga is the fundamental system of yoga that focuses on the pairing of poses or “asanas” with conscious breathing.
The Shakti Foundations class incorporates 40~45 minutes of postures. After that, the student rests in “Savasana“. According to my teacher, Rod Stryker, savasana is a key time for the organs, nervous system, and brain to absorb the nourishment created by the flow of energy (prana) cultivated with the postures.
Later we seat to practice breathing techniques or “pranayama” to create mental stability. Finally, the class concludes with the student seated in stillness to practice mindfulness or meditation. This is a seniors friendly yoga class, feel free to use a chair to seat during meditation.
