Classic Hatha: Level I/II

This class is taught by:

Kate Garza

Kate Garza began yoga practice at age 21. Over nearly four decades, she has been both student and teacher of yoga theory and practice. She began teaching in 1999 and became certified in 2001 along with Tricia Fleming in Ashtanga yoga.
She continued advanced teacher training with David Swenson and others in the Ashtanga teaching community. In recent years Kate began to combine her yoga studies with QiGong and is an advanced student with Master FaXiang Hou, a 5th generation QiGong practitioner of this ancient healing art. As she personally entered the intersection of Yoga and QiGong, she discovered Energy Medicine Yoga, developed by Lauren Walker in 2017. Her classes combine classic yoga, mindfulness practice and techniques of both QiGong and EM Yoga in a welcoming and lighthearted atmosphere.
Kate is a freelance writer and lives with her husband Len, a dog and a cat, with visits from their three kids in college.

Elizabeth completed her teacher training in 2006 at Wake Up Yoga after being inspired by teachers and studies in college to delve into eastern philosophy. During her yoga training, she developed an interest in the anatomical and physiological aspects of the practice while furthering her understanding of its philosophy.

Emily aspires to teach alignment-based classes encouraging students to dive deeper into their practice and into their hearts, learning there is always more, both on and off the mat. Please join her.

All Levels Welcome
Hatha yoga provides students with a safe and supportive environment to explore optimal physical alignment in yoga poses. Students will move slowly and mindfully, deepening their understanding of poses while quieting the mind through this breath focused practice.  Because this style has less weight bearing activity for the upper body it is perfect for students who are newer to yoga or recovering from upper body injuries.
Recommended For:

- Brand new beginners.
- Seniors.
- Students healing from an injury or with an injury.
- Intermediate students deepening current practice with alignment work.
- Pilates and Barre students adding a supporting practice.
