Traditional Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga & Yin Yoga
TRADITIONAL HATHA YOGA:
Hatha Yoga is a principle style of Yoga practices and is the origin of all other yoga practiced today. The word Hatha is a combination of two words ‘Ha’ meaning “Sun Energy” and ‘Tha’ meaning “Moon Energy” representing two Principle energies flowing within our body. When these two aspects of one’s self are integrated, a fullness of the whole personality is experienced.
Hatha yoga influences our two sides of the brain and brings balance between these two energies within all of us to merge from the opposite to the harmony of oneness.
Hatha Yoga is a powerful tool of transformation and the practitioner develops a balance of strength and flexibility. The Salient feature of “Hatha yoga” is the focus on the asanas and breath control while holding the postures for longer duration. Hatha yoga classes incorporate the mind, body and spirit through various practices like Asanas, (postures) Pranayama (breathing) and Kriyas, (internal cleansing). It is not fast flowing and is highly suitable for beginners as well as advanced practitioners, as it is much gentler then Ashtanga yoga.
Vinyasa literally means to be placed in specific way. In this Style all the asanas are connected with each other and based on breath in a manner of unbreakable flow, which meant to bring the mind in calm and pointed state with a help of 4 components: asana, ujjai, bandha, drishti, where all the components practiced together to achieve physical and mental balance. The sequencing of asananas is one of characteristics of vinyasa style. ( Ujjai should be performed in a proper way).
Yin Yoga refers to a style focussing on long held seated, supine and prone types of passive yoga postures with the aim of increasing blood circulation in the bone joints and improving flexibility of muscles. At physical level it mainly works on elongating and strengthening connective tissues – (ligaments tendons & fascia) whereas at energetic level it improves the flow of prana in subtle body energy channels (meridians).
Yin Yoga also conditions you to stay with the intense sensations that arise, rather than quickly moving into the next pose. It trains you to become more flexible with your body and mind together by holding yoga poses in a more passive way from minimum 2 minutes up to maximum of 20 minutes.
The beauty of Yin Yoga style is that it can be deceptively intense, enhances both our endurance and patience, helping to move further our threshold of resistance. Yin yoga teaches you how to really listen mindfully by finding the better version of stillness within the body. It is such a great style of yoga to apply in your personal life, because it keeps you in a certain pose for long period of time, which then asks you to learn to “be”, to “develop patience” and to “accept what is” in the present moment.
