Hatha is a general label for the practice of yoga movement and held poses. In these classes, you can expect instruction in a variety of standing, seated and reclining postures. Depending on the specific teacher’s background and unique approach, there are different amounts of emphasis on flowing movement, static poses, breath awareness, and the use of props. However, the general form that a yoga class follows is a period of centering, warm-up, active poses, cool-down, and ending with a period of deep relaxation. These classes have the most general audience and are designed to help you move over time from a beginner to a more experienced practitioner.
