Hatha Core yoga / Static yoga
"The source of your strength is balance, or peace of mind. But peacefulness does not mean sleepiness! Living in peace means making an alliance with forces instead of fighting against them."
It is based on the foundations of Hatha yoga and consists of 33 asanas and breathing exercises.
Traditional hatha yoga is a complete system that, in addition to physical exercises ("cleansing procedures", postures and breathing exercises), also includes mental training, i.e. different degrees of meditation.
It is recommended for beginners in all respects. It's usually orders of magnitude easier than a dynamic yoga class. In the classes, the positions are held for several breaths, so the exercises are easier to learn, and there is enough time for correction. Practicing is also safer, as there is a greater risk of injury during movement, and you can stretch yourself more easily. You have time to feel your limits, the point where the practice works really well, when the position is already pleasant, a good experience, but you haven't overstretched yourself, you haven't gone beyond your limits. This is much more difficult when moving. And if we look at the mental effects, such a class reduces your stress level, relaxes you, and makes you more accepting and calm in the long run.
It develops strength-endurance, flexibility, coordination, and moves the deep and supporting muscles. It offers both men and women the opportunity to relax and develop physical and mental balance.
The room is heated between 26-32 (°C), it is not as hot as in Bikram or hot yoga, but the higher temperature is necessary because the body adapts better, joints and muscles stretch more easily, and less injury is dangerous. Continuous fluid intake is necessary for effective detoxification and metabolic processes. At the beginning of the class, we learn the special breathing techniques and basic positions, which we actively practice until the end of the class. We complete the asana series in 80 minutes, then continue with clean breathing exercises and finish with a meditation.
Come and overcome the limits set by your own mind!
