Techniques training and practice
The core style of asana taught in the course is traditional Hatha yoga.
Traditional Hatha yoga
Traditional Hatha yoga is a principle style of yoga practices and is the origin of all other yoga practiced today. The word Hatha is a combination of two words ‘Ha’ meaning “Sun Energy” and ‘Tha’ meaning “Moon Energy” representing two principle energies flowing within your body. When these two aspects of one’s self are integrated, a fullness of the whole personality is experienced.
Hatha yoga influences your two sides of the brain and brings balance between these two energies within all of you to merge from the opposite to the harmony of oneness.
Hatha yoga is a powerful tool of transformation and the practitioner develops a balance of strength and flexibility. The salient feature of “Hatha yoga” is the focus on the asanas and breath control while holding the postures for a longer duration.
Hatha yoga classes incorporate the mind, body, and spirit through various practices like asanas, (postures) pranayama (breathing) and kriyas, (internal cleansing). It is not fast flowing and is highly suitable for beginners as well as advanced practitioners, as it is much gentler than Ashtanga yoga.
The course also introduces other styles of asana practice including: Vinyasa flow, Yin and smooth Restorative yoga in order to experience the other yoga styles.
