Hatha Yoga The word Hatha comes from the Sanskrit terms “ha” meaning “sun” and “tha” meaning “moon”. Hatha is the most popular form of yoga and is the basis for other popular yoga such as Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Iyengar and Kundalini. In Hatha yoga, you will learn to control your breathing in a relaxed and modulated way in order to provide focus in different postures. Through the holding of poses and continued practice of Asanas, proper alignment and mindful actions of the body can be found. Hatha yoga brings balance, strength, and a sense of well-being to the practitioner. *Suitable for the beginner to advanced practitioner*
Vinyasa Flow Roughly translated as breath coordinated movement, vinyasa yoga sequences interconnect static poses with dynamic transitions using a series of yoga postures designed to still the mind, invigorate the body, and concentrate the breath. A classical Vinyasa yoga class starts by centering the mind in the body through breathing. It then proceeds through a warming cycle of strengthening and lengthening postures concluding with a resting phase to cool the body and integrate the effects. Expect to build heat in the body and encounter some challenging sequences and postures with options to modify. *Suitable for those with yoga experience or beginners that are fit and well*
