Hat-ha yoga, or some variation of it, is what most people in North American are practicing. Hatha is a sanskrit word which describes physical posture work, just a small aspect of the whole study of yoga. Some variations of hatha include Ashtanga, Hot, Kripalu, Iyengar, Sivananda, and Yin Yoga. All these styles are based on a basic set of physical postures or poses, called asanas.
Some types of yoga are more vigorous than others. At Aware Yoga, you will practice a gentle hatha style focused first on syncing breath with body movement. You will learn traditional yoga poses and work at them with instruction to whatever is your personal ability, paying close attention to what works best for you. Options and deeper versions of all poses will be demonstrated so that everyone can find their way into the most beneficial pose for their own mind, body and spirit.
