Yogaworks offers different yet complementary styles of hatha yoga. All styles are based on the physical practice of yoga together with specific breathing techniques.
Hatha yoga is the physical branch of yoga which provides tools for the development of a healthy body and a clear mind. Regular practice of hatha yoga cleans and tones the body from inside out, and increases strength, stamina and flexibility. Hatha yoga can also help boost the immune system, reduce stress, and improve overall body posture. For more information on yoga and the benefits of hatha yoga, please refer to the FAQ section.
The choice of the class depends on individual objectives and preferences. « Hatha » classes tend to be softer and more focused on alignment, whereas « power vinyasa » tends to be more athletic.
Recommended for beginners and all levels, this class teaches the fundamentals of hatha yoga practice, with particular emphasis on the alignment and precision of the postures. It is an excellent conditioning for body, mind and breath.
Not recommended for complete beginners, this is a powerful, flowing and athletic type of yoga. While focusing alignment and integrity in the postures you will move, sweat, breathe, and hopefully have fun!
