Hatha is a general category that includes most yoga styles. It is an older style of Yoga that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation. The main difference between a Hatha and Vinyasa Flow class is the pace and the goal of the practice. Hatha yoga is designed to align and calm your mind, body and spirit. Vinyasa classes often repeat series of poses and often involve increasing body heat and building strength.
