The word hatha is translated as ha meaning “sun” and tha meaning “moon”. The word yoga, from the Sanskrit word yuj, means “to bind” or mostly interpreted as “union”; uniting your mind, body and soul. Hatha Yoga is the heart of all practices. It is not about flexibility or the ability to do difficult postures, but awareness of the body and the breath; combining your mind, body and soul into one, while focusing on your breath. The asanas (or postures) are designed to align your skin, muscles, and bones. They help open all of the channels in your body so that energy can flow freely. This class is suitable for all levels.
Hatha Flow Yoga
Hatha Flow (with Vinyasa influence) focuses on the specific manner in which you flow from one posture to the next with the breath, while maintaining the flow of energy. It encourages focus and balance in order to gain flexibility, increase endurance and muscle resistance. This class is recommended for students who want to deepen their practice and increase their strength.
Yin Yoga allows us to work the “yin” tissues or the deeper tissues of our joints, ligaments, fascia and bones, whereas Hatha Yoga, for example, works the muscular half or the “yang” tissues. Yin Yoga is not restorative yoga, but it is designed to help you sit longer and more comfo rtably by stretching the connective tissues around the joints. It involves variations of seated and supine poses typically held for three to five minutes. Yin is a needed complement to the more muscular styles of yoga. A good balance of Yin and Yang is beneficial. This class is suitable for all levels.
This class is a little mix of Hatha yoga, which is primarily a yang practice, and then enhances the practice with settling down into Yin yoga. The instructor will take about 15-20 minutes of class for some yang asanas, but the main focus will be on the Yin asanas. This class is suitable for all levels.
