Pam’s classes cultivate the connection between physical movement and breath, encouraging a meditative practice. Students often comment on how limbered, refreshed and relaxed they feel after class. Many have succeeded in using relaxation techniques learned in class to restore and recharge themselves in their daily lives.
Typically, a hatha yoga class begins with a warm up; sun salutations which is a flowing sequence of movements coordinated with the breath; and Asanas (postures) which develop balance, strength, and flexibility. A closing relaxation allows the body and mind to absorb the work done.
Pam qualified to teach hatha yoga in 2000 and has taught children, teens and adults at all levels.
