Let’s take a stroll down memory lane, shall we? But before we do so, let’s find our breath. If you’re slouching, gently elongate the spine, and draw the shoulders back and down from the ears. Lengthen through the crown of your head. Ahhh, there you go. 

Inhale for 4. Exhale for 4. Inhale for 4. Exhale for 4. 

You have arrived. Hi there, friend. 

Take a moment to think back to your first time stepping foot onto a yoga mat. What brought you there? How were you feeling? Were you experiencing optimism and excitement to try something new?  Maybe you felt resistance. Some of us were probably silently scanning the room, thinking to ourselves “is this the beginner’s class, because that instructor looks like they’re going to contort my body into a literal human pretzel”. 

It doesn’t matter if you are new to yoga or you are folding left to right and front to back like living origami, we all experience some form of negativity in our practice. Whether it’s comparing ourselves to the bodies around us, working through a challenging pose, or getting distracted by life beyond the mat, it is a part of what makes us human. 

But let’s revisit that original question: what brought us to class? This question can act like our guide; one that redirects us back to what matters most – our needs. Our intentions. What were our intentions?  We came to a yoga class, right? Right! To put in the work. To train the mind. To be with our body and our breath. To slow down. To play in the present. 

So, what can you expect from a class at HAUM? Well, aside from experiencing our stellar studio ✨vibes ✨, a class at HAUM is an opportunity to drop into the present moment. It’s a chance to give back to yourself. To nurture your mind, body and spirit

Together, we are stepping into an inclusive space that offers a diversity of ways to explore our practice and spirituality, whatever that may look like for us. Much like a menu, our schedule features multiple class types to meet your needs.
