The 8 Limbs of Yoga
Hatha refers to postures (or Asanas) in the 8 Limbs of Yoga. The 8 Limbs are the 8 ways to practice yoga on the path to a bliss state, including; Yamas (restrictions), Niyamas (observances), Asanas (postures), Pranayama (breathwork), Pratyahara (withdrawal of senses), Dharana (focused meditation), Dhyana (inspired meditation), and Samadhi (bliss or ananda). Within Hatha, we find two general types of yoga – yin and yang. Yin is passive yoga, where by we work with the body. Yang forms of yoga are active, that focus on alignment for integrity and safety. They include; Hatha (as we know it in the West), Vinyasa/ Flow, Power yoga etc. At Studio 202, we offer many healing styles of yoga to support your wellness journey.

Join our recent Teacher Training grads for a by-donation Vinyasa class! This class is open to all-levels. Vinyasa draws on Hatha practice, incorporating meditation with breath and movement. Vinyasa is a moving meditation, flowing through poses with your breath. Poses help build strength, stamina, balance, and flexibility to create space within the body and calm the mind.
Saturdays 1130-1230pm with YTT Grads (begins May 4 – by donation)
Gosh Yoga develops breath, balance, mobility, and strength. Still postures with steady breathing activate and stretch muscles to bring awareness and focus on the body. Relaxing pauses calm the breath and allow return of blood flow to muscles, joints, and organs in resting position. In each class, students open and align joints and organs, to reduce wear, release tight fascia, and open channels for energy movement in the subtle body. Students will find focus and concentration to meditate and live healthier.
Wednesdays 745-845pm with Conan
