Yoga Styles

HATHA Yoga

  • What is it?

Hatha Yoga is known as the Yoga of Balance. The word Haṭha is broken down into “Ha” which means sun and “Tha” which means moon. Thus “Hatha” is the “force” that merges the sun and moon energy together to bring you in a perfect balance. Hatha is most often used to describe slow-paced, traditional Yoga classes with no flow between poses. Through the breath awareness and the slow-paced asanas, you connect with your soul. 

  • Why do it?

Hatha classes are a good place to work on your breath, coordination, balance and alignment. You will also learn relaxation techniques, and become comfortable with doing Yoga while building strength and flexibility.

  • Who is it for?

You, if you are always on the go and need a slow-paced way to stretch your body, relax your mind and connect with your soul. It helps you restore balance inside out. It is also ideal if this is your first encounter with Yoga.

 *Cautionary Note

If you go into a Hatha class and it feels too slow or not active enough, be sure this works magic on you. Gentle and slow-paced Yoga work on you weigh deeper than you think!

 

KUNDALINI Yoga

  •  What is it?

Known as the Yoga of Awareness, Kundalini Yoga is a dynamic and powerful style of Yoga designed to give you an experience of your soul.

In Kundalini Yoga you harness the mental, physical, and nervous energies of the body and put them under the domain of the will.

Kundalini classes combine a powerful breath known as rapid breath of fire with dynamic postures, chanting, meditation and deep relaxation.

  •  Why do it?

Kundalini Yoga trains you to harness your inert potential (Kundalini) and transform this energy to serve you in your daily life. Kundalini Yoga improves the strength of your nervous system so you can keep up with the daily challenges and crisis. It also increases your breath capacity so you can enjoy a calm mind, a longer and healthier life.

You, if you are seeking to find your inner light, share your greatness with the world and become an excellent leader with a powerful aura and radiance.

VINYASSA Yoga

  •  What is it?

Vinyassa is mainly about linking body movement with breath in a specific sequence of breath-synchronized movements used to transition between sustained postures.

  • Why do it?

Vinyassa Yoga is your deep conditioning way for increased flexibility, mental focus, cardiovascular  health, calorie-burn and muscle development.

  • Who is it for?

You, if you want a total body workout in connection with your deep breath and in rhythm with your relaxing thoughts, Vinyasa is for you! It is like a dance so come with an open mind, not knowing what to expect next! This is perfect for you if you have a very structured and routine life and are looking for something spontaneous.
