Hatha

This branch of yoga focuses on asana (physical poses), pranayama (breath), and meditation to align the body and mind. Classes move at a slow to moderate pace allowing students to find balance between strength and flexibility, resulting in increased awareness and relaxation.
Hatha/Vinyasa- This practice will utilize some flow and some static postures, linking breath to movement in a dynamic form. Breathwork and pranayama is emphasized throughout, including internal techniques to contain and channel energy. Students will develop increasingly subtle awareness from the beginning to the end of class, and in each pose. Class ends with seated pranayama and meditation.
