We teach Hatha Yoga in the morning, the most ancient yoga style and the “mother” of all other styles. Hatha yoga consists of Asana (postures), Pranayama (breathing exercises), Mudras (gestures) and bandhas (energy locks) as well as Shatkarma (cleansing techniques). If you want to know more about the differences between Hatha yoga and other popular styles like Vinyasa, this blog article will be useful to you.
