Karma Hatha Flow
Hatha Yoga is a general category that includes most yoga styles. It is an old system that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation. Hatha is a great place to start, is gentle, a little slower, and encourages students to focus on proper alignment and form to support their bodies.
Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Bikram, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. The word “hatha” can be translated two ways: as “willful” or “forceful,” or the yoga of activity, and as “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha), the yoga of balance.
