While our style of yoga at The Ayurvedic Path is mostly hatha yoga, we have varied styles to suit your needs.
A branch of yoga which concentrates on physical health and mental well-being. Hatha yoga uses bodily postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation (dyana) with the goal of bringing about a sound, healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind. There are nearly 200 hatha yoga postures, with hundreds of variations, which work to make the spine supple and to promote circulation in all the organs, glands, and tissues. Hatha yoga postures also stretch and align the body, promoting balance and flexibility. A beginners class would be for a practitioner with no experience to a couple of years experience while a level 2 class is for the practitioner who has at least one year of consistent practice.
