Yoga Styles


The name "Hatha", is derived from the Sanskrit ha, meaning "sun," and tha, meaning "moon," leading to the common interpretation that Hatha practices are designed to unite and balance these two energies. 

Traditionally, Hatha yoga offered a total life philosophy, incorporating how we relate to external and internal experience as a path to inner peace.

Common modern practice, Hatha yoga is generally practiced more slowly and with more static postures (asanas), practice will include breath work (pranayama) and meditation or general relaxation/rest (savasana).


Restorative yoga is a form of yoga that aims to relax, restore, and rejuvenate the body, mind, and spirit.   This is a passive, meditative practice where poses are held for a longer duration, typically 5 minutes or more.  In this practice we use props such as bolster, blankets and blocks to support the body and release tension throughout the body.

Restorative yoga is a type of hatha yoga, an ancient yoga practice from India. Restorative yoga can benefit people who want to stretch, relieve back pain, improve sleep, or prepare for meditation.
