Our Hatha Yoga classes offer a traditional practice at a moderate pace. Emphasis is placed on gaining proficiency in poses by strengthening exercises and deep stretching. Careful attention is given to alignment and finding proper variations so students of all levels can progress – achieving balance, stability and ease.
Hatha Yoga also teaches breathing techniques from proper diaphragmatic breath to more advanced pranayama. Working with the breath enlivens energy and soothes the nervous system.
Each class also includes a guided relaxation and meditation training.

“I met Aphinya about two years ago when I took an introduction to yoga class with her. I had been taking pilates for many years on and off and thought I knew what yoga was all about. I assumed it was the same poses – just holding them longer. After my first session with Aphinya, I realized how wrong I was! She explained and demonstrated the poses the way they are supposed to be done and my body felt it more in that one session than ever before. She is a master yoga instructor. Her demonstrations on how to align your body so that you are focusing on the right muscles is amazing to me. She has taught me that yoga is not only physical but spiritual and mindful as well. I always knew that I controlled the thoughts in my mind and not the other way around. Aphinya lives that and helps her students remember that as well. Every time I leave a session with her, I feel stronger physically, mentally and emotionally. I feel blessed to have found such an authentic teacher who is so sincere, kind and patient. Her passion for what she does comes through every single time I work with her. Thank YOU, Aphinya!” Paula Terranova
