Hatha Yoga is considered the traditional Indian Yoga style. Hatha Yoga’s style tends to be slower-paced and with varying sequences. The practice of Hatha Yoga balances the Sun (Pingala Nadi) and Moon energy (Ida Nadi) within the body and transforms the lower chakra energies to higher levels. Every pose in Hatha Yoga should be practiced with awareness, respecting the body’s limitations.
Vinyasa Flow is a more fast-paced Yoga style of movement with synchronized breathing. Vinyasa Flow also called Flow Yoga because of the smooth way that the poses run together, becoming something like a dance. In Vinyasa Flow class, the teacher is free to combine various asana’s to create the flow–sometimes challenging postures are introduced.
