Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a practice that combines stretching, strength and meditative breathing. Instead of pausing between poses as you would in more traditional yoga, each move flows into the next, making it an intense workout linking asana with push ups (chataranga), forward folds (uttanasana) and side bends. The emphasis is on strength and flexibility as well as a fitness practice.
The word Vinyasa (vin-ya-sa) means "breath-synchronized movement." Vinyasa focuses on linking the breath with movement & is often referred to as a Moving Meditation. Expect movement and not just stretching. This class is at a slower, deeper pace with longer holds and more mindful movement.
Hatha is a gentle, basic yoga class without flow between poses. Every class will include pranayama (breathing) practices, use of hand mudras (hand gestures used to channel your bodies energy flow) and a guided meditation at the end. Hatha class is a good place to work on your alignment and to learn the basic poses, their sanskrit names, benefits as well as modifications. If you are wanting to move through a gentle sequence designed to restore mobility, increase flexibility and ease stiff & achy muscles and joints, an opportunity to relax the mind and the body, to experience powerful pranayama (breathing) practices and ease into a gentle, restorative meditation then this class is for you!
A Hatha class will leave you feeling relaxed, renewed & rejuvenated as well as build your knowledge on the practice of yoga.
Sometimes referred to as Yoga for the joints and not the muscles it directs the stimulation created by the asana into areas deeper than the superficial or muscular tissues. Yin Yoga works the connective tissue of the ligaments, fascia, joints and bones. All the postures are passively held for anything form three to twenty minutes. While initially this style of yoga may seem passive or 'soft', it can be quite challenging due to the long hold and deep release in the poses. Yin class will leave you deeply relaxed and restored, may assist with healing from injuries as well as improve flexibility.
