Hatha Yoga incorporates postures, breath, and meditation to promote connection between mind and body. This class emphasizes proper alignment and steadiness of breath and includes gentle movements interspersed with poses held for longer durations to increase flexibility, strength, balance, and concentration. All levels are welcome, with modifications offered for beginners and variations for seasoned practitioners. Each class ends with a period of relaxation, meditation, and a sound bath of harmonium music and chanting.

Lynn Wickersham has been practicing yoga and meditation since 2001 and has studied a variety of yoga styles including Iyengar, Hatha, Ashtanga, Kundalini, and Yin. She attended formal yoga training at the Yandara Yoga Institute in Baja California Sur, Mexico, where her practice blossomed as both teacher and student. Lynn believes that the practice of yoga is a journey into the self, which leads to compassion for others, attunement with the environment, and personal contentment. It is her intention to guide students along their own journey to realize the physical, mental, and emotional benefits that yoga has to offer. This is Lynn’s 10 th year of teaching yoga classes in Durango!
