Hatha yoga utilizes the practice of asanas (postures) and pranayama (conscious breathing) to enhance health and vitality and to bring about balance in one’s life. Through the practice of asanas and pranayama, along with inner focus, you begin to experience a freedom that may permeate all aspects of your lives.

Many of our teachers study and practice different styles of yoga including Kripalu, Scaravelli, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Iyengar, Integral Yoga Therapy and more. Some teachers teach the traditions in their pure form; others draw from their training in a combination of the traditions, which is simply referred to as “Hatha style”, “multi-style” or “eclectic”.
