Style of Yoga taught at UYM

Alignment-based Hatha Yoga

Alignment-based Hatha Yoga is an approach to teaching classical yoga poses through a deep awareness of correct alignment and precise action. This not only refines the poses, but it also trains the mind to remain alert and focused. Classes may include quick-paced flow, long-held, supported poses for restorative or recuperative purposes, or a combination of both. Props such as wall ropes, chairs, bolsters, blocks, and straps are often used to understand the poses better through external support and feedback.

Vinyasa Flow Yoga

Each pose is linked to the next through synchronized breath movements called Vinyasa. These are dynamic, fun and challenging classes taught in a fast-paced way with a continued emphasis on precise alignment. This powerful and vigorous type of practice purifies and realigns the body, cultivating a feeling of inner peace. These classes are for students who are ready to move with safety and intelligence.

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga

The ancient and traditional system of Hatha yoga called Ashtanga Yoga is unique in that it is composed of precisely designed sequences of postures. Join us for an invigorating practice that promotes challenging yet sensible postures that translate to the needs of daily life: corporal stabilization, breath observation, mental focus. Expect alignment-based sweaty yoga from the Ashtanga 1st and 2nd series, with variations, modifications and big fun!
