What to expect in a hatha yoga class

When you see “hatha yoga” as a style of a class, it means that the class will probably have aspects of physical and mental practices without adhering to any particular proprietary styles like Ashtanga Vinyasa or Bikram. You might expect to have some physical postures there (asanas), breathing exercises (pranayamas), maybe some cleansing exercises (kriyas), concentration and meditation exercises (at least in a form of shavasana or yoga nidra in the end of a class), and sometimes dynamic exercises like vinyasas. The style of one hatha yoga teacher and her repertoire of techniques may be vastly different from another hatha yoga teacher, so you need to read reviews or check descriptions of their classes to have a better idea of what to expect.
