What is Hatha Yoga?
Hatha yoga is the overarching umbrella of yoga that encompasses most of the traditional styles, including Vinyasa and Ashtanga. Directly translated to “willful” or “forceful” in Sanskrit, Hatha yoga is the fundamental system of yoga that focuses on the pairing of poses or “asanas” with breathing techniques or “pranayama.”
Hatha yoga uses the practice of poses to rinse out the body and build the physical strength and endurance required to spend long periods of time in meditation. Once the Hatha yoga practice is complete, the ideal mind-body harmony has been created to facilitate deep, relaxing meditation.
Hatha yogis can expect an accommodating practice full of static postures, mindful breathwork, and a manageable pace. This dynamic allows for a greater focus on alignment and mindful breathing, making the practice accessible to yogis of all levels, especially beginners.
Vinyasa yoga is one of the most popular styles of yoga practiced in Western world today. A Vinyasa yoga practice connects individual poses or “asanas” with deep breaths or “pranayama” in a series of flowing sequences of movement.
Designed to progressively open the body, each sequence in a Vinyasa yoga class builds upon the previous, evolving into deeper, more advanced postures as the practice unfolds. Resetting “vinyasas,” are a standard series of poses that transition the yogi back to their home base pose: Downward Facing Dog. The entire practice culminates with a deep sense of mindfulness, self-connection, and ease. Also referred to as ‘Flow Yoga’, as it focuses on the relationship between movement and breath. Each movement in the sequence flows effortlessly into the other, almost like a dance. Expect more movement than other styles such as Hatha and Yin.
This practice teaches you how to harness the power of your breath. Translated literally as; Prana= Lifeforce / Yama= Control. The earliest records of Yoga, don’t refer to the physical practice as it is portrayed today, but rather focuses on liberation through meditation and Pranayama. There are over 10 different types of Pranayama techniques, focusing on a variety of benefits. Some aid the digestion, others help give a radiant complexion but all improve oxygen circulation, lung capacity and calm the mind.
Yin yoga is an excellent practice for beginners. Yin is a passive form of Yoga, it’s much slower paced than other styles. Expect to be seated or lying down for the majority of the class. Poses are held for longer periods of time, allowing access to your connective tissue, tendons, muscles, and ligaments. Yin yoga involves a series of seated and supine postures, typically held for 3-5 minutes at a time. During these prolonged periods of stillness, the yogi experiences a surrendering sensory awakening that melts away residual tension and stress. Long Yin yoga holds are also known to release repressed or stored emotions, leaving the yogi feeling lighter, clearer, and completely relaxed. You’ll feel like you’re floating on a cloud after a Yin class.
As the name suggests, this style is similar to Vinyasa. You still find yourself flowing from pose to pose, harnessing your breath but don’t expect to break into a sweat. Tuning into your body and stilling the mind is key in this practice; slowing down the pace allows for this. You’ll have time to stretch out your muscles and learn about correct alignment in each pose. This is key for when you move onto the faster paced styles so perfect for beginners!
“Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts.” –
