Hatha Yoga is focused on the physical body and its health, striving to build the strength and flexibility of the body in order to make space for the breath. Once the breath can move with no restraint, it leads you towards pranayama (breathing techniques), healing the subtle body, preparing oneself for meditation and higher states of consciousness. Hatha Yoga classes with emphasis on asana (posture) and breathing techniques will bring overall well-being and health throughout the body and greater strength, flexibility, relaxation and concentration.
Kundalini Yoga combines all 3 aspects—breath, postures and meditation—from the start, in order to maintain a healthy spine, supporting and strengthening the nervous and glandular systems. After a Kundalini yoga class one can become much more aware about the inherent strength of the body and begin the journey of emotional and spiritual change and transformation.
