This is a more restorative, softer form of yoga, Hatha yoga refers to the practice of bringing balance to the two main energies in the body-the energy of the moon and the energy of the sun. Ha means sun and tha means moon, this is a translation from the Indian Sanskrit and refers to the balance of day / night, male / female, yin / yang. Hatha yoga is a powerful tool for self-transformation. It asks us to bring our attention to the breath, which helps us to still the fluctuations of the mind and be more present in the unfolding of each moment.
This is a series of poses that will move you through the power of inhaling and exhaling. Vinyasa movements are smoothly flowing and almost dance-like, which explains why it is sometimes referred as Vinyasa flow or just flow. The harmony between breath and movement will give you strength, grace and freedom.
Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with poses, or asanas that are held for longer periods of time - five minutes or longer per pose is typical. It is based on the Taoist concept of yin and yang. In the body, the relatively stiff connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, and fascia) are yin, while the more mobile and pliable muscles and blood are yang.
A Yin yoga class usually consists of a series of long-held, passive floor poses that mainly work the lower part of the body-the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, and lower spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues. Yin Yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues, with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility.
