One of our hatha yoga teachers noted recently that people often ask her what poses are done in hatha yoga. Some ashtanga yoga students (a more dynamic form of yoga) don’t realise that you will recognise all the same poses in hatha yoga that we practice in ashtanga. Traditionally hatha is performed at a slower speed, the focus may be on different things but the base poses are the same.
This means if you are used to ashtanga or vinyasa yoga, it won’t mean that you ‘can’t’ do a hatha yoga class. You will enjoy the same poses but with a different emphasis and focus.
Have you thought about mixing and matching your classes to get the different benefits of these types of yogas?
Our Gold and Silver membership allow you to attend any classes on the timetable for the same price every month. Try out hatha to your heart’s content!
