What is Hatha Yoga?
Hatha yoga pairs poses (“asanas”) with breathing techniques (“pranayama”) in certain breathing manner which is very specific, while the poses are held longer duration as compared to other dynamic styles.
At the same time, the term “hatha” has also evolved worldwide to describe a particular type of yoga class that’s typically comfortable paced with a focus on proper alignment.
What’s the difference between hatha yoga and vinyasa? Compared to vinyasa which often flow through series of poses at a quick succession, hatha classes typically guide practitioners through postures at a comfortable pace with more guidance on how to do each pose correctly.
Health benefits and Research Done
- Less anxiety: Results from a 2016 meta-analysis of 17 studies (501 patients) provide preliminary support for hatha as treatment for anxiety
- Better balance: A small 2014 study involving 34 men found that those who completed a five-month hatha yoga program were able to improve their posture control. Based on those results, the authors conclude that hatha yoga training can improve body balance.
- Fitness improvements: A 2015 study of Chinese adults discovered that a 12-week hatha yoga program had positive effects on several components of fitness including cardio, muscle strength and flexibility.
Hatha also focuses on breath timed to movements (typically at a slower pace than what you might experience in vinyasa), and classes could include meditation and pranayama.
