Hatha Yoga

The most popular styles of yoga in the West today derive from Hatha Yoga, including (but not limited to) Bikram, Iyengar, Jivamukti, and Ashtanga or Vinyasa.

This is one of the most referred to terms in regards to yoga, and actually includes to any type of yoga that involve physical postures (or asana).

Because of this, the majority of the classes taught in western society fall under the Hatha umbrella, but an offering labelled Hatha Yoga usually indicates a slower paced, more gentle style of class.

BENEFITS:

  • Learn basic and proper alignment

  • Enhance your mind-body connection

  • Improve flexibility

BEST FOR:

Beginners, or anyone looking for a less intense physical class that will leave you feeling looser and more relaxed.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

While you likely won't break a sweat in a Hatha yoga class (but no judgement if you do!), you can expect to learn, understand, and practice the foundational elements, including proper posture, in basic yoga poses.
