The Sanskrit word Hatha means "effort". Hatha-Yoga refers to a set of physical postures (known as asana) and breathing exercices (pranayama) designed to focus the mind and prepare to a meditative state. Hatha is also translated as ha meaning “sun” and tha meaning “moon.” This refers to the balance between masculine and feminine aspects within us. In our bodies, we develop a balance of strength and flexibility, and a balance of effort and surrender in each pose.
“Vinyasa” is derived from the Sanskrit term nyasa, which means “to place,” and the prefix vi, “in a special way”. The Vinyasa Yoga sequencing is a "step by step" progression into a certain posture (asana). Working our way from simple to more complex poses, we integrate the functions of mind and body, by continuously and consciously linking the movement to the breath.
Integral Yoga is a balanced approach to yoga where all aspects of this discipline are taken into consideration. Thus there is focus on mindful performance, observation of emotional states and development of positive qualities. Expect a strong asana (posture) session to strengthen body and will-power, pranayama (breath/energy work) to cleanse and quieten the mind, before a long meditation or relaxation to go deep into your inner world.
Ashtanga translates as “eight (ashta) - limbed (anga)” and refers to the eight steps outlined by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras to reach the state of bliss (samadhi). These include ethical guidelines (yama and niyama), postures (asana), breathwork (pranayama), sense withdrawal (pratyahara), concentration (dharana), and meditation (dhyana). Practically, it refers to a dynamic system taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, which comprises a precise series of strong poses done in sequential order.

If it's your first class...
Have a look at our teachers on the schedule page and take the time to register online by filling the registration form next to your teacher's biography. Then come a little earlier so you can meet the instructor, and let them know of any past injury. We provide mats and props, but advise that you bring your own for hygienic purposes. Wear comfortable clothing and expect to practice barefoot, or with slip-resistant socks. Try not to eat at least 2 hours before class. You are welcome to try out different teachers at the beginning, but we strongly recommend that once you've chosen your tutor(s), you stick to them on a regular basis for more benefits. See you on the mat!
