Hatha

What it is: Hatha yoga is the physical practice of yoga that uses a combination of body postures (asanas), breathing (pranayama) and meditation (dyana) with the goal of invigorating both mind and body. It’s also where almost all modern styles of yoga are derived from.

Who it’s for:
Hatha is a slower-paced practice, which focuses on breathing and basic poses, so it’s a great practice for beginners.
