Hatha yoga is the practice of Asana (postures) meant to gently improve balance, strength and flexibility and to cultivate discipline, body-awareness and a sense of inner calm. Traditionally, Asana are practiced in order to prepare the body for meditation or other contemplative arts as part of one’s broader yoga practice. The emphasis on these classes will be on stretching energy pathways in the body to help eliminate tension and quiet the mind. Suitable for all abilities and levels of experience with yoga. A donation of $5-$10 is suggested with proceeds going to support Six Degrees and the Native Women’s Resource Centre of Toronto.
Kelsey Ross has been practicing Hatha yoga for 10 years and is looking forward to sharing her practice with the Six Degrees community.

She intends to focus an integrated practice on mental health issues associated with chronic illness and end-of-life care.
