Hatha Yoga - Intermediate - Sydney Course

We offer training in face to face and/or online learning formats.

  • Please see scheduled class for delivery format.
  • Online classes delivered via livestream video over Zoom.

In this intermediate Hatha Yoga course, you can go at your own pace to gain strength, flexibility, muscle tone and general well being whilst you learn to relax and concentrate using Hatha Yoga techniques and poses. We integrate breathing, movement and relaxation into an interesting and challenging class. We use Hatha Yoga to focus on long-term health and wellbeing.

You will learn Pranayama (breathing techniques), Vinyasa and Asanas (Stretching and yoga poses), variations of Surya Namaskar (sun salutations) and Yoga Nidra (meditation and relaxation).

Every term is different, so even if you have attended previously, you will still be challenged by something new.

In Hatha Yoga, we cover the whole body but will focus on one particular area each term, such as core strength and stability. The classes vary with the seasons. In the warmer weather we move more slowly and stretch more, in cooler times we work on increasing your metabolism and creating heat in the body. And amongst that, we have a good time – a lot of laughter and smiles!

By the end of this course, you may experience an improvement in your general wellbeing, relief of stress, stabilised blood pressure, assistance in digestion and weight loss, a better night's sleep and a positive effect on overall health and energy levels.

Macquarie Community College operates from a range of venues across northern and western Sydney. We have campuses in Blacktown, Carlingford, Chatswood, Mt Druitt, Richmond and Ryde. Enrol today or enquire now!
