Vinyasa, is a flow where poses are linked together to make a sequence. The sequence in a Vinyasa class is varied and teachers have the freedom to arrange the progression of poses in their own ways.
In vinyasa yoga, each movement is synchronized to a breath. The breath is given primacy, acting as an anchor as you move from one pose to the next. Each movement in the series is cued by an inhalation or an exhalation of the breath, leaving the body aware of it’s own potential and at ease.
This intense practice follows an exact set of poses with each one held for five breaths. Three different sets of poses, each with a varied focus, grow more challenging as they move along. The first series focuses on forward bends, the second on backbends and the third on arm balances. As important as the movements, steady, even and rhythmic breathing are paramount to achieving results in Ashtanga. It is for this reason that the following quote speaks such truth: “Ashtanga Yoga is a breath practice, the rest is just bending”.
Here the student is left to practice individually, rather than in a “led” class. The teacher is present to assist when help or guidance is needed, leaving each student to find their own pace while still following the same poses and sequences of traditional Ashtanga.
Hatha Yoga is the mother of all other yoga styles practiced nowadays. It is the art of becoming whole, integrating our physical, psychic and spiritual energies through a vast system of postures (Asana), breath exercises (Prananyama), energy locks, mudras, chanting, concentration, visualization and meditation. Interpretations suggest that the term “hatha” does mean “force”, but “forceful” is not the practice itself: it is the results of the practice. Asana and Pranayama are integrated in the psychosomatic/energetic system of chakra, and hatha yoga has “forceful” - meaning strong - effects on the practitioner’s movement of prana (vital energy). The rhythm and intensity of hatha classes can vary and is dependent on the specific purposes of the practice and the experience of the practitioners. It should anyway always provide an expressive dimension to awareness, a space to feel and be, perfect as you are.

Meditation + Mindfulness
Meditation and mindfulness are all about moving attention away from distracting thoughts and instead focusing on the here and now. Concentration on breathing, bodily awareness or on a particular word or phrase known as a mantra results in increased calm and centeredness. Being aware of and involved in the present moment will help to make yourself open and accepting.
Strala Yoga is a state of mind. It ́s an attitude of spaciousness, of loosening the grip on expectations and staying curious about everything that comes up as you surf your wave of yoga into your life. Strala Yoga accomplishes challenge with ease and uses Tai Chi-inspired movements. You learn to unblock energy where it`s stuck and to move more naturally and efficiently. The main goal is not the perfect external pose but the way of moving and to feel good along the way.
Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of Yoga that emphasizes an Asana, postural practice that is held for longer periods of time. In Yin Yoga, poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. With a more meditative approach to yoga, at Yin we aim at cultivating awareness of inner silence and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality.
