Hatha Flow classes are the general classes on the bendy yoga schedule.
These classes blend two different types of yoga – Hatha and Vinyasa.
Hatha yoga is a generic term that refers to any type of yoga that teaches physical postures. Nearly every type of yoga class is derived from Hatha, including Ashtanga, Iyengar and Bikram. However, in contemporary terms, Hatha is most often used to describe a slower-paced class.
Vinyasa, which is also called ‘flow’ because of the way that poses are sequenced together, is again a broad classification that encompasses many different types of yoga. Vinyasa yoga coordinates movement with breath to flow from one pose to the next.
bendy yoga Hatha Flow classes provide you with an opportunity to balance both Hatha and Vinyasa styles of yoga so you can enjoy a varied yoga practice.
The emphasis of the class changes from week to week so we might focus on a different area of the body or practise with a different aim (build more strength, increase flexibility, cultivate more self-awareness etc.) All classes are anchored by a theme to encourage you to tune inward and develop a deeper emotional and spiritual connection.
