The Sanskrit word hatha means “force” and implies that we must apply effort in our practice. The term hatha yoga refers to a branch of yoga that uses asana (physical postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), and dhyana (concentration) as a means of attaining samadhi (spiritual bliss). Hatha yoga is popular as a way to strengthen the body, increase flexibility, and reduce stress.

The Sanskrit word vinyasa means “to place in a special way” and refers to the moment to moment awareness of a series of unfolding events. The term vinyasa yoga refers to a branch of hatha yoga that links breath and movement in a flowing sequence of asana. There is less focus on physical alignment in a vinyasa yoga class, as the intention is to observe the process of unfolding.
Meet Our Teachers
Great teachers bring an energy and understanding that comes from going through their own periods of darkness, and emerging on the others side with a new level of empathy and compassion. They are able to inspire and support you on your path. And they are here to serve. Let us offer you a practice that will change the way you fundamentally view the world while bringing a smile to your face.
Yin and Yang are relative terms and one cannot exist without the other. In terms of yoga, yin denotes that we are working with tissues that are more dense and less elastic, namely the connective tissues of the body that are generally not exercised in a more traditional yang or hatha yoga class. Yin Yoga focuses primarily on the hips, pelvis and low back and is designed to prepare our bodies for extended periods of seated meditation.

At Inner Spring Yoga that purpose is to widen our circle of compassion and work to improve ourselves as a way of improving our wider community.
