The Heated Hatha classes are designed as the perfect compliment to our foundational Hot Classes, working more deeply into the hips and upper body, as well as introducing basic inversions. Utilizing a sequence of standing, balancing and seated postures, including basic inversions and hip openers, Heated Hatha is designed to encourage proper alignment and bring balance, strength, and a calm mind. Classes are based on classic yoga postures with attention to alignment and deeper layers of yoga, including mindfulness and attention to breath. The sequence will not change much week to week, so you can start to learn the series and gauge your progress. This is not a “flow” class: expect longer holds, “just enough” Vinyasas, and some use of props such as blocks or belts to assist a posture or maximize a stretch. Modifications offered to meet student’s needs; beginners welcome.
What’s the difference between Heated Hatha and Flow? Flow is characterized by flowing poses and varying sequences that are linked to the breath. Much emphasis is placed on the breath and the transition in and out of the postures. Expect to move and breathe smoothly from one pose to another, building strength, energy and grace and releasing stress in the body. If you like to focus on the power of breathing and flowing movement through poses, you will enjoy this style. Try Hot Flow for a dynamic and energizing class for strong beginners and intermediate levels that emphasizes mindful movement, breath, and grace within transitions. Hot Power Flow is a challenging but fun, intermediate class with varying sequences set to captivating playlists and will encourage strength and steadiness. Or, take it down a notch for Slow Flow, a slow-moving and supportive class that combines flowing movement and breath to encourage mindful movement and relaxation.
