Type of Yoga Classes at Urban Fitness Club
- Hatha Yoga – If you’re new to yoga then trying out a Hatha class might be the way to go. Hatha as defined describes any of the practices, so a Hatha class will be slow-paced and geared for beginners. There will most likely be a lot of breath work, i.e., pranayama, as well an introduction to a variety of poses, and slow and gentle movements. Hatha is also great to wind down with in the evening after a long day of work.
- Vinyasa Yoga – Commonly called “Vinyasa flow” or just “flow”, you’ll definitely be moving, flowing from one pose to the next. Other than starting with a sun salutation, no two classes will be alike. It’s the most popular style of yoga in America.
- Power Yoga – It is also called “Ashtanga”, this style of Yoga requires constant movement and is physically demanding. Looking to sculpt that body of yours, get a little definition in those arms or chest, all while getting some cardio in? Then give Power Yoga a whirl!
- Restorative Yoga – Restorative yoga is typically practiced with props, and involves only a handful of restorative poses you’ll hold for extended periods of time — but you’ll really connect your mind with your body. Expect more poses that open the chest area for breath work and more lying down than in your typical practice.
- UrbanRock Yoga – It combines a powerful physical practice with energetic music to tear down the ego and establish a deeper connection with the Self. Music needs to reflect the intensity of the practice. The instructor draws upon a variety of music not traditionally associated with yoga, such as hard and classic rock, melodic metal and punk, to name a few genres. These types of music increase the intensity of the practice and create powerful sensations not often felt through traditional yoga.
