Overview of hatha yoga

Hatha Yoga, is the Sanskrit word meaning union. Hatha Yoga as an ancient science has been practiced in the east for millennia to promote physical and spiritual health. It can be practiced beneficially in some form by everyone. Popularised in the west during the sixties it is now blossoming under many names, such as Astanga, Eight Limbed and Vinyasa.


The disciplines cover movement, breathing, stillness and supporting “well-being” on every level. We realise increasingly that health doesn’t happen on the physical level alone. Hatha yoga is the original source from which all other styles of yoga are drawn.


More recently Hatha Yoga has become a term used to describe a style of yoga which takes a more gentle pace. It a form of yoga which can be easily accessed by people of all ages sizes and physical abilities.

Benefits of hatha yoga

Hatha Yoga is a popular form of physical activity and a type of mind-body exercise. A regular Yoga practice can improve strength, flexibility, and balance; reduce stress; and provide many therapeutic benefits as well.

What to expect

Expect a slower-paced stretching-focused class with some basic breathing exercises (pranayama) and perhaps a seated meditation at the end. Hatha classes are a good place to work on your alignment, learn relaxation techniques, and become comfortable with doing yoga while building strength and flexibility.
