Vinyasa yoga is a style of yoga that emphasizes a continuous flow of movement coordinated with the breath. It is often described as a "moving meditation" because of the focus on linking breath with movement. In a typical vinyasa yoga class, the teacher will guide students through a sequence of yoga postures, or asanas, that are linked together with fluid transitions, known as vinyasas. These vinyasas often involve moving from a plank pose to a chaturanga pose to an upward facing dog pose to a downward facing dog pose, creating a seamless flow of movement. Vinyasa yoga can be physically challenging, but it also provides a mental challenge as students strive to stay present and focused throughout the practice.
Any class on our schedule with "vinyasa" in the name will be a "flow" style class. Our Yoga for beginners classes will learn both vinyasa and Hatha styles of yoga. Our hot Vinyasa class will be a flow style class while our Hot Yoga class will be a Hatha style class.
Vinyasa stands in opposition to hatha. Hatha classes focus on one pose at a time, with rest in between
Hatha yoga is a type of yoga that focuses on physical postures, breathing techniques, and meditation. It is one of the most popular forms of yoga practiced in the Western world. The word "hatha" is derived from two Sanskrit words, "ha" and "tha", which mean sun and moon, respectively. The practice of Hatha yoga aims to balance these two opposing energies within the body, leading to a harmonious and healthy lifestyle. In addition to increasing flexibility and strength, Hatha yoga can also help reduce stress, improve mental clarity, and promote overall well-being. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced yogi, Hatha yoga offers a wide range of benefits for both the body and mind.
If the class title (class name) does not mention vinyasa, it is a Hatha class! Some examples of Hatha Yoga classes are restorative , yin, hot yoga, gentle yoga, and chair chair yoga.
