Hatha Basics

This yoga class will focus on core asanas (postures) along with breath work (pranayama) and meditation (dhayana).  This class will help build strength and flexibility, providing an inward focus for the student.  Proper alignment will be emphasized.  Students will enter most standing poses from either mountain pose (tadasana) or a wide legged stance.

Hatha yoga is an overarching term that includes all of the physical practice of yoga.  Not specifically vinyasa in nature, this class will encourage students to take time to set up their poses and to stay present in the practice by connected to breath and body.  This would not be considered an “easy” practice but is a good choice for beginners or intermediate practitioners alike.

Katharine “Kat” Wheatley was certified as a RYT-200 in 2013 with YogaWorks and is a registered member of Yoga Alliance. Kat was trained as a classical ballet dancer, studying and performing for nearly 18 years with the Fletchers and with the Land of the Sky Civic Ballet in Asheville, NC. Kat started practicing yoga occasionally at a gym almost 25 years ago, but it wasn’t until 2011 that she committed to a steady and (almost) daily practice of yoga. Kat is currently manager of Key Largo Yoga and in addition to overseeing workshops and special events, she manages the schedule, our team of teachers, and our social media connections. Kat subs classes when the regular teacher is unavailable and as such can teach any level of Vinyasa Flow, Hatha, Aerial, Gentle, SUP Yoga, and Yin. Kat continues her education as often as possible through her own practice, with her mentor Kathy Shirley, and by attending multiple workshops, conferences and events throughout the year. Join Kat for her Yoga Essentials class, Yin Yoga, Hatha Basics or her Friday afternoon Fun Flow, or stop in to the studio office to say hello!

Jenny was first introduced to yoga when she attended a class at the local gym. She looked at yoga as a method to improved flexibility in her workouts, and continued attending yoga classes often. After her deployment to Afghanistan she joined a local studio in Georgia and began to explore the more meditative practices of yoga, the health benefits her body and mind received was an awakening from the anxiety she had begun to feel. When she began her transition from the Active Army in July of 2016 she was excited to attend yoga teacher training in Santa Cruz with Mark Stephens, immersing herself in learning and earning her 200 hour certification with Yoga Alliance. Outside of yoga she spends her time outdoors enjoying running, biking, and swimming. She and her husband are both avid divers and spend much of their free time together diving the coral reefs of the Keys.
