Hatha Yoga with Roz
Hatha / Flow classes focus on building strong foundations in the yoga postures. We take advantage of moving with the breath to warm up the body and find a sense of ease and fluidity. We often use a yoga block or strap to support and strength the body in different asanas. All levels are welcome!
Roz – discovered her passion for yoga through her career as a contemporary dancer. She undertook Ashtanga training with John Henson in Perth (2009). Roz’s classes give focus to developing postural alignment. In class she uses props to discover and identify body sensations which deepen our understanding of the yoga asanas. She also makes use of imagery and detailed anatomical cues to develop our knowledge of the body.
