Hatha Vinyasa Yoga
 



Hatha Yoga is, so to speak, the oldest asana practice known today. It represents the point of union and
balance between two opposing forces. The Sanskrit root “ha” means “sun”, while “tha” translates as “moon”.
Hatha represents the eternal dance between themasculine and feminine, between the body and the mind.
Vinyasa means flow, movement. Referring both to body movement,
as well as the flow and movement of the breath.

Older does not necessarily mean purer or more original, both Hatha and other more current styles are the result of the evolution of ancestral rituals and practices through time and the different traditions and cultures that inhabited India.

Daily practice of Hatha Yoga provides this balance on the physical, energetical, emotional and spiritual level.
For you to experience that, there is no need for any new belief system, nor for a change in existing ones.  

Hatha Yoga practice consists of postures and physical exercise (asanas), breath control (pranayamas), concentration and meditative practices, and also of a series of moral principles and concepts (yamas and niyamas).
It is the combination of these practices that make Hatha Yoga, from our own personal experience, undoubtedly one
of the most complete systems of personal growth that exist for the purpose of liberation from suffering.  

In our practice both disciplines are present, sometimes closer to the more static and traditional Hatha, sometimes closer to the fluid movement of Vinyasa, and at other times in a fusion across both disciplines, depending on how we feel as teachers also as persons at that moment, and the general needs of the group.
Generally what we need and what we like are two different things.
 
In spite of having difficult positions like head- and handstands, crow or scorpion in our daily practice, we don’t believe in perfection as everything can constantly evolve simply by daily practice. Yoga is not meant to create competition or to be a show to demonstrate how “yogi” we are through the accomplishment of very difficult and elaborated positions. The purpose of yoga is to be aware, to connect with body, mind and emotions through breathing and to find and stay in balance no matter what happens. We believe in a “perfect” point of balance that every person can reach in each position, which of course is purely individual. We perceive the practice of asanas as a mere training for the mind and body, enabling us to bring inner balance
to our day-to-day life, where it is more difficult to create balance and thus much needed.
