COMBINATION OF HATHA YOGA & POWER YOGA
Power Yoga is a relatively more vigorous class with an intense flow of Yoga. This can be best described as “gym Yoga,” which demands students to work up a sweat. Whilst, Hatha Yoga is a relatively light and slow class, mostly for beginners or for students who prefer a gentle and relaxing session.
A passive form of Yoga, which involves postures and movements being held in a more slower rate. Highly recommended for pregnant women.
