SIVANANDA HATHA YOGA
Sivananda Hatha Yoga is classical yoga. It teaches us how to strengthen and harmonize the body, the mind and the soul, so that we can achieve our goal of a healthy body, a balanced mind and inner peace.
This is a traditional, medium-paced class that helps encourage proper breathing, flexibility, strength and vitality in the body while calming the mind. Unlike Ashtanga vinyasa yoga’s more athletic program involving Bandhas, Sivananda Hatha revolves around frequent relaxation, emphasizes full yogic breathing, sun salutations before practicing the set of 12 asanas. After warming up with sun salutations, the focus is on mastery of the twelve basic poses in the fixed order below:
- Seated Forward Bend
- Seated Spinal Twist
- Crow or Peacock
- Standing Forward Bend
Sivananda Yoga can be summarized in 5 principles:
- Proper exercise
- Proper breathing
- Proper relaxation
- Proper diet
- Positive thinking and meditation
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a modern style of exercises and stretching practiced in combination with yoga breathing and ancient yoga philosophy. It should not be confused with the historical Ashtanga Yoga of Patanjali. The Sanskrit word “Vinyāsa” refers to a transition between two different positions, to describe the process of transition between each yoga posture. So Vinyasa yoga can be understood as a flow of yoga poses (sequences).
The beauty of the vinyasa classes is that it is up to us to create the sequences to serve certain purpose of our practice. It can be challenging, relaxed, fast or slow pace. The following sequences are some examples of Vinyasa classes. You can refer to the Library here to view the whole sequences of poses.
- Balance Flow
- Restorative flow
- Arm strength flow
- Chest opening flow
- Hip opening flow
- Inversion flow
- Core strengthening flow
