Gentle Hatha Yoga: classes

Learn about the world of yoga through the UniSport Gentle Hatha Yoga group exercise classes! Gentle Hatha Yoga exercises are suitable both for beginners and the more experienced.

Hatha yoga is the most classic style of yoga and the most well known in the West. It is also the basis of many modern forms of yoga. Gentle Hatha Yoga is composed of different basic yoga movements, which are called asanas. During the classes, the same asanas are often repeated so that the movements and positions gradually become familiar to you.

Gentle Hatha Yoga develops breathing technique, body control and peace of mind. Through the exercises, you learn to listen to your body better. During the classes, the exercises are done gently and at your own pace.

Who is it for?

Gentle Hatha Yoga is suitable for everyone! The class is very suitable for those that are finding out about yoga for the first time, but it also provides good basic practice for those that have done yoga before.

How can I participate?

You can participate in Gentle Hatha Yoga through the weekly group exercise classes.

If possible, you should bring your own yoga mat with you. A yoga mat allows you to exercise safely and efficiently, and is also hygienically a more pleasant option. If you like, you may also use an exercise mat available on-site.

In addition to the mat, you will need stretchy and warm clothes. We will be exercising without shoes. You can bring a drinking bottle if desired.
