Traditionally, Hatha Yoga is a general category that includes most yoga styles. It is an old system that includes the practise of asanas (yoga postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), and relaxation, which bring peace to the mind and body. It focuses on detail, precision, and alignment in the performance of posture and breath control.
Hatha Yoga is a path towards creating balance and uniting opposites. The class is relatively gentle, slow and great for beginners or students who prefer a more relaxed practise, holding each pose for a number of breaths. The class focuses on developing the balance between strength and flexibility.
