Types of Classes
Hatha is a 60 minute class that is based on traditional 26 postures and two breathing exercises. Hatha is practiced in a heated studio. It is challenging and exciting which that heals, detoxifies, tones the internal organs, cleanses you from the inside out. Hatha Yoga also works every muscle, ligament, tendon, organ, gland, cell, and joint in the body. It builds strength, flexibility and balance, and increases your cardiovascular and circulatory systems, while burning up to 1000 calories a class.
Power is fun and fresh! You will learn the alignment and form of basic postures using breath with each movement. This practice is also done in the heated studio. It is an amazing, fun and challenging workout. Power yoga combines classic lunges with deep stretching and balance which will quickly strengthen your muscles, tighten your core and burn body fat. It is designed to soothe the nervous system, balance hormones, build cardiovascular strength, and improve the digestive system.
This style is a sequential movement of asanas which interlink to form a continuous flow. One will learn the linking of body movement with breath using static asanas into a dynamic flow. The length of one inhale or one exhale dictates the length of time spent transitioning between postures. Asanas are then held for a predefined number of breaths. Attention will be placed on the breath and the journey between the asanas rather than solely on achieving perfect body alignment in an asana, as is emphasized in Hatha.
