In India, yoga is known as a way allowing to live harmoniously, fostering the spiritual progress of man through control of body and mind. The practice of Asanas (yogic postures) and Pranayama (breath control), better known as Hatha Yoga, is not only useful to acquire perfect health, maintain youth and prolong life, but it is intended to develop the inner strength. It serves as a body preparation for a higher yogic research such as concentration and meditation. The practice of asanas removes everything that blocks the circulation of energy and the practice of pranayama regulates the flow of energy throughout the body.

Hatha Yoga ...
The most traditional form of yoga, from which all the other forms are derived. Ha means sun, tha means moon. Hatha means the merging of sun and moon, male and female, and is a purifying and remedial practice where breath and body movement are one.
The practice includes Asana (postures), Pranayama (breathing exercices), Bandha (co-operating muscle groups that serve the movement of energy and breath), Meditation, Relaxation. It develops strength, flexibility, bodily relaxation and mental concentration.
Hatha Flow ...
A sequential movement that interlinks postures to form a continuous flow.
Vinyasa Flow ...
The core idea is to shift emphasis from posture to breath and therefore to realize that postures, like all forms are impermanent. Instead of keeping postures for a longer time, poses are kept for a couple of breaths, so that no identification with the posture or body is stimulated.
Vinyasa is a meditation on impermanence , the only thing that is permanent is the focus on the ujjayi breath.
Yin Yoga ...
a more recent approach with origins in the 90’s, is a slow yoga, incorporating principles of traditional Chinese medicine, with asanas that are held for longer periods that in other styles. Is a combination of yoga and meditation.
