Yoga with Fran
Hatha Yoga refers to a set of physical poses (asanas) designed to align the muscles and bones and open the many energy channels of the body, especially the spine, so that energy can flow freely. Hatha yoga is intended to create a balance of strength and flexibility in the body as well as a balance of effort and surrender in each pose. A Powerful tool for self-transformation, Hatha yoga requires that one pay special attention to the breath, which helps calm the fluctuations of the mind. This allows the practitioner to become more present in the unfolding of each moment, resulting in more awareness and relaxation. This style of yoga provides a great stretch and strengthens the body.
The use of props and modifications will be used if necessary so that even those with health restrictions or decreased range of motion can enjoy the benefits of a traditional practice.
