Hatha Yoga (North)

Hatha yoga is not a specific type of yoga, but rather a practice that encompasses all of the asanas, or physical postures.  In the context of our modern asana practice, the general term Hatha has come to be used specifically to describe a one-pose-at-a-time style class, with focus on alignment, anatomy, body mechanics, and mindfulness.
In our Hatha class expect an emphasis on simplicity, repetition, and ease and a pursuit of effortlessness even as we work out the body’s kinks. Relaxation is paramount as we make a full circuit of the body’s range of motion with standing postures, twists, backbends, forward folds, and hip openers.  This class will be a slightly more intense exploration of a classical Hatha practice, developing strength, balance, poise, and flexibility.
 This class is appropriate for experienced Hatha yogis who enjoy a classical practice or for newcomers interested in learning more about the physical practice.

Not your stereotypical Yogi. People are often surprised when they find out that I practice Yoga. Born and raised in Key Largo and Miami. Played every organized sport I could in High School. Continued that trend playing College Football and Lacrosse at The Carnegie Mellon University while obtaining a BS in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I was the typical Fraternity/Football/Beer/Party College Kid. Came home to work with the family after graduating. Not loving the cold of Pittsburgh may have had a small part of that decision.

In 2013, I sought out Yoga to releive stress, and have been hooked ever since. I practice a little of everything including, but not limited to, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Hatha, Gentle, Restorative, Aerial, and SUP. I completed my 200 hr YTT in 2015 at Key Largo Yoga under the guidance of Kathy Shirley.
