Hatha Vinyasa

Hatha Vinyasa is a mixture of the traditional practice of Hatha and flow. In these classes, you flow from one asana to the next in coordination with the breath. The intention behind the movement and how you move is an important aspect and will leave the practitioner with a different out-of-body experience. The body flows and so does the prana.

When doing an intense course like a 100-hour teacher training course, it is especially important to nurture oneself with nutritious fuel for the body and mind. To do yoga asanas is not enough on its own, the lifestyle has to be yogic as well and then the transformation is felt. You are what you eat, it affects your mood and ways of thinking.

In yoga, it is recommended to eat a sattvic diet, which means eating food which makes you feel light and energetic. At Hatha Yoga World, the meals served will be sattvic to purify the body and therefore also the mind. Hatha Yoga World has a talented and passionate chef who will provide fresh meals cooked with love. The energy from the one cooking should be good and kind since this also affects the prana in the food.

In Ayurveda, the sister science to yoga, it is emphasized to eat at the same time every day. With busy lifestyles, it can be difficult. At Hatha Yoga World, the meals are set at specific times with regular intervals to support the natural rhythm of the body. If you have special dietary requirements, please communicate this to Hatha Yoga World when making the reservation.
