Bikram Yoga is a series of 26 postures performed in a heated room for 90 minutes. Bikrams Yoga is suitable for all ages and levels of ability.

'Ashtanga' means 'eight limbs', Ashtanga Yoga is a set series of postures, with a sun salute between postures; These postures are the same, practiced in the exact same sequence, held for the exact same number of breaths. It is a very challenging and disciplined practice, but incredibly rewarding.
‘Ha’ is considered the left side of the body and ‘tha’ the right. The aim of Hatha Yoga is to merge/unify both the left and right sides of the body. Essentially, balance, which is why all postures are repeated on the left and right side of the body. The focus will be on whatever theme or parts of the body that the instructor and the class choose to work on.
Hatha Flow is not taught in a heated room. You may do two or three sun salutations to warm the body and the rest of the class you will hold postures for up to 10 breath cycles. Basically the postures will flow from one to the other with longer holds. All movement is synchronized with your breathing, transitioning from one pose to the next on either an inhale or exhale.
