Hatha

means FORCE in Sanskrit.

 

It is a form of yoga that works with the physical postures named the asanas.

During a class you learn to practice them safely and in a correct alignement.

You also train on breathing technics, the pranayamas,
and discover the meaning and use of the mudras, the hand gestures.

 

Benefits of a regular practice are multiple.

 Levels of energy and  focus are highly increased, the self-awareness is sharpening,

and  flexibility improves. Hatha yoga tones and stretches the all body,

but also  relieves back problems

and stimulates the general health condition.

 

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is recommanded against stress and anxiety.

It also improves the flexibility of all articulations,

 increases the prana (energy) and unlocked physical blocages.
