Hatha is a slower moving class that allows you to hold each posture for a few breaths. Teachers provide guided instruction and alignment cues, making this a good class for all skill levels–beginner through experienced. Often thought of as a “traditional” yoga class, Hatha practices are designed to align and calm your mind, body, and spirit. In addition to it’s traditional Hatha classes, Orange Moon also offers:
Yoga Basics: A perfect class for beginners or those who want to refine an existing practice. In this class, the instructors will break down yoga poses, helping students to understand how each pose works within their individual bodies. Through holds and alignment, instructors will both teach the basics and work student’s bodies to create a well rounded practice.
Sacred Vibes: This class mixes the sound of quartz crystal bowls with a Hatha practice to bring balance of chakras, deep states of clarity, and feelings of wellbeing.

Combining breath with movement, you will flow from one posture to the next in this class, while taking time to focus on proper alignment. With more instruction regarding the postures and a slower pace than vinyasa, this is a great class for all levels who want to move, but still find space in their practice.
Strength and power are the focus of this class. Filled with power holds of poses and strong movements, all students, regardless of practice level or ability, can find a challenge in this class.
Vinyasa is a vigorous practice that matches breath with movement. Flowing from one posture to another, you will hold certain postures long enough to find space and quiet. Teachers may guide the class through various arm balances and provide opportunities for inversions. While modifications and alternate postures will be offered to accommodate various levels, it is recommended that vinyasa students have an established yoga practice.
Kundalini Yoga is the yoga of Awareness. It is a science that gives us the tools to awaken our consciousness and to cope with every day challenges. It is a yoga for everyone. It works by balancing the glandular system, strengthening the nervous system and enables us to harness the energy of the mind and emotions in order for us to be in control of ourselves. “In Kundalini Yoga the most important thing is your experience. It goes right to your heart. No words can replace your experience.” Yogi Bhajan
A slower yoga practice, in which postures are passive and are held for longer periods of time. This allows students to access deeper stretches and practice mental letting go to remain in the present.
