Hatha Flow is a continuously moving meditative flow of creative, dynamic sequencing of Asana.
All yoga is essentially Hatha Yoga, but with so much variety from different schools and traditions, sometimes a little description helps; Hatha Flow can be described as a mindful practise which places emphasis on moving with grace – in and out of asana with an awareness on the breath and body sensations.
Hatha flow may differ from a traditional Hatha class simply in its seamless flow – it doesn’t mean we don’t hold asana for a length of time – it just means we’ve conjured up the sequencing to create an uninterrupted flow from one pose to the next. In my humble opinion, I feel Hatha Flow may differ from Vinyasa simply in its freedom to change tempo and intensity: we have the freedom to slow down, to be dynamic, to be precise – however we feel to take the class; I feel there is less expectation or presumption of how our class will be as Hatha Flow is a very broad term and can’t be pigeon holed like some other traditions perhaps.
Ultimately though….all yoga is yoga: beautiful in all forms and shades.
