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.
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.
Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is the practice of awakening our higher self and turning potential energy into kinetic energy. It helps balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system and purify the blood to bring balance to the body, mind, and soul. It combines meditation, mantra, physical exercises and breathing techniques that guide the energies of the body and the mind into a specific result or change of consciousness.
Vinyasa is derived from the Sanskrit term nyasa, which means “to place,” and the prefix vi, “in a special way”— as in the arrangement of linking one posture (asana) to the next. Vinyasa Krama means a "step by step" progression into something, or to a certain goal. Working our way from simple to more complex poses, we integrate the functions of mind, body and breath in the same time frame.
Prenatal yoga focuses on positions that are specifically designed for pregnant women’s bodies. As your baby grows, there’s a lot more weight pushing down on your bladder and pelvis. Pregnancy hormones also loosen your ligaments, making joint and bone problems (especially in the pubic bone) a source of discomfort. In addition to modifying positions for pregnancy, prenatal yoga also emphasizes breathing, stretches and strengthening moves that help your body prepare for labor.

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!
