Vinyasa Flow Yoga emphasizes linking breath to all movements or asana sequences throughout the practice. This flowing class is energizing, incorporating some sun salutations as well as many familiar hatha yoga postures. It allows one to flow deeper into practice and into the spirit of yoga. Level 1/2 vinyasa flow is for experienced beginners through intermediate level practitioners.
Level 2 is for more experienced yogis.
Hatha Yoga represents opposing energies: hot and cold (fire and water, following similar concept as yin-yang), male and female, positive and negative. Hatha yoga attempts to balance mind and body via physical postures or "asanas", purification practices, controlled breathing, and the calming of the mind through relaxation and meditation. Asanas teach poise, balance and strength and are practiced to improve the body's physical health and clear the mind.
Sustainable Ashtanga is a profound system that detoxifies and strengthens the physical body while expanding consciousness and quieting the mind. Previous experience is necessary to practice in the Ashtanga class.
