Little Information About Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga

Hatha and Ashtanga are two different forms of yoga, each having excellent benefits for mind and body.

  • Hatha mainly concentrates on the positions with the help of slow-paced classes. The focus is given on positions that you have to hold for longer than Ashtanga while keeping control over-breathing. Most of the classes have a meditation or relaxation segment in the end.
  • Ashtanga yoga tends to be faster than Hatha yoga, probably because the focus is given not to the individual positions, but to breathing control. It emphasises on transition from one yoga position to the other in a smooth and flowing manner.

If you want to practice slow-paced yoga, then hatha yoga is perhaps what you are looking for. However, if you are ready to take some tougher challenges, then an ashtanga yoga course would be the one for you. If you are not sure what you should go for, then join a combination program that will make you well versed with both and identify your preferences.
