What is Hatha Flow Yoga?
What is its history?
Hatha Flow Yoga is a mixture of Hatha and Vinyasa yoga. Hatha yoga is great for beginners and those who prefer working deep into their yoga postures. It concentrates particularly on breathing and your physical posture. Poses are held for longer than with some other forms of yoga. In Vinyasa yoga poses are grouped together so that as the body warms and opens up the postures and the poses are carried out in a continuous flow of movements. Hatha Flow Yoga combines all of these elements.
Functions and benefits of Hatha flow yoga
This form of yoga can be practised by all levels from beginners upwards. It requires a healthy balance between effort and relaxation. Classes normally begin with a gentle warm up followed by a sequence of energising and sequential poses. These poses will align the body and breath. It will also lengthen and strengthen your muscles and ligaments. These different postures will take place either standing up or some are seated, or floor based.
In these classes you will learn to work with your body into the postures to where you are most comfortable. Your body will learn how to release tension. Each class will finish with a deep relaxation to help calm the mind and relax the body. We will also practice short meditation and breathing practices in class.
