About Hatha Yoga
Hatha Yoga is the perfect yoga for beginners as well as for more experienced students who appreciate authentic, traditional yoga which benefits both mind and body. The regular practice of Hatha Yoga will give you a more easeful, healthy and comfortable body as well as a relaxed and peaceful mind. Through Yoga you recognize your hidden physical and mental potentials. Through practice of the physical postures you will gain flexibility and strength, and learn to be more relaxed under otherwise stressful situations.
The timetable also includes Hatha Flow style classes – the emphasis in these classes is on movement synchronized with breath with a continuous flow from one pose to another. They suit students who prefer a more dynamic practice.
About Iyengar Yoga
Named after B.K.S Iyengar a hugely influential Indian teacher whose legacy is far reaching -his style of teaching is globally respected and his contribution to our understanding of Yoga in the West cannot be overestimated.
The trademark of iyengar yoga is the intense focus on the subtleties of each posture. In a typical iyengar class, poses are held much longer than in other schools of yoga, in an effort to pay closer attention to the precise musculoskeletal alignment within each asana. Another trademark of iyengar yoga is the use of props, such as blocks, belts, bolsters, chairs and blankets, which are used to accommodate injuries, tightness or structural imbalances, as well as teach the student how to move into a posture properly.
