Hatha Yoga Melbourne – Hatha Yoga Classes Melbourne

Hatha is a traditional form of yoga that is suitable for all sorts of students: any age, fitness or ability level. Our Melbourne yoga classes are available both in our Mount Waverley yoga studio and via Zoom.

What is Hatha yoga Melbourne?

Hatha yoga Melbourne is usually what comes to mind when you think of traditional ‘yoga’. Focusing on the body, mind and breath, you will be guided through an hour-long Hatha yoga classes Melbourne that will stretch and realign your neuromuscular system. 

Some say that the Sanskrit word ‘hatha’ comes from ‘ha’ (‘sun’) and ‘tha’ (‘moon’); both these energies exist in our bodies and the aim of yoga practice is to unite and harmonise them. While the central idea – balancing ourselves and moving towards a single, unified self – is accurate, the word ‘hatha’ actually translates to ‘effort’, ‘force’ or ‘exertion’. This is an apt description, as Hatha is a yoga style that is very dependent on movement and physical yoga poses or postures.

Focusing on both Asanas (postures) and Pranayama (breathing techniques and breath control), you will slowly move through the different postures, holding each one to let the body stretch. Our yoga class will end with meditation, helping you to relax and preparing you for the rest of the day ahead. 

This is a more relaxed style of yoga compared to Vinyasa or some of our other yoga classes. If you’re new to yoga, want to focus on your core and posture, or just want to relax, this is a great class for you!
