About Hatha Yoga
Hatha Yoga originated in ancient India. The word Hatha means: ‘Ha’ – the sun, ‘Tha’ – the moon, ‘Yoga’ – union; to unify or merge. The sun and moon relate to complimentary energies within us and Hatha Yoga refers to the practice of balancing and uniting these energies. The physical postures (asana) are a vehicle for transformation and have many benefits. They work the body in a balanced way and reach not just our external muscles but our internal muscular skeletal system, eliminate toxins, release tension, tone the spine, balance the glands and positively affect the body’s systems (nervous system, digestion, hormonal system, respiratory system etc). A regular practice can help to retrain postural habits and holding patterns within the body and regulate our energy, bringing the mind and body in to a more harmonious state.
Therapeutic Yoga involves the application and adaption of yoga techniques to specifically address and help to manage physical conditions or injuries such as back pain or to help to manage conditions such as stress and depression. Together with addressing the injury or health condition, therapeutic yoga facilitates deeper self discovery and the unfolding of your potential and aspirations in life. It is taught as a personalised and progressive programme, normally on a one to one basis or within a small group, so that the specific needs of the individual can be addressed.
What our participants says
“A fantastic class. I feel like ‘Power – Woman’ now!
“I initially approached Amy’s Yoga class with some trepidation because I suffer mobility problems. However, Amy’s calm approach and perceptive awareness and understanding of individuals’ physical and mental needs and capabilities soon allayed my fears. The sessions are carefully paced and I always leave them feeling totally relaxed and more confident in my own abilities.
“I always enjoy and look forward to attending Amy’s Yoga class. She has such a reassuring calmness about her and I always feel stronger, more stable and lighter in myself afterwards.
“My contact with Amy first started when I was trying to address severe neck pain and postural problems. We had several private sessions where Amy helped me work through these issues. My posture has improved and strengthened. I would very much recommend working with Amy
