What is Hatha Flow Yoga? Traditional hatha yoga is a holistic yogic path, including disciplines, postures (asana), purification procedures, breathing (pranayama), and meditation. It is also recognized as a stress-reducing practice. 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 in preparation for meditation.

FLOW ( Vinyasa) Vinyasa, meaning ‘breath synchronized movement’ is a series of poses that you move through on either an exhale or an inhale.
