Gently Forceful Yoga?

Gently Forceful Yoga?

An afternoon workshop of history and practice. Most postural yoga is technically called “hatha”. Nowadays, this term is often used for a gentler class, but its original meaning was “forceful”. We’ll explore where this came from and how it made yoga more dynamic, evolving into modern forms of practice. We’ll start with texts, looking at the first to teach “hatha” by name (the Dattatreya Yogashastra), then implement some of their teachings. Booking now for Saturday, 13 April (14:30 - 17:00), at Triyoga Shoreditch.
