Gentle yoga is all about how to ease you into feeling your best. Using gentle postures and relaxed breathing exercises, you can effortlessly plunge into the benefits of lengthening your tissues while nurturing grounded, stabilizing strength.Slow yoga is the most common style of yoga, it involves gentle classes with no flow between postures. Yoga poses are held for a longer period of time helping you to build and strengthen your muscles and increase flexibility. Slow yoga also involves simple breathing exercises to increase the flow of oxygen to your body and allow you to remain calm during your yoga practice. Slow yoga classes are sometimes referred to as Hatha yoga and these yoga flows are great for beginners and more experienced practitioners alike. If you find this style of yoga too slow and meditative for you and are looking for something a little more athletic, you might want to try Vinyasa Flow yoga.
