Stroud Yoga Space offers a variety of different yoga styles.

All yoga has the same set of asanas (postures) in common, but there are different ways of interpreting them, and so we have created descriptions of each style that we offer to help you find a style that appeals to you. Often the best way to discover is to try out a few different styles until you find one that resonates with you. We also have a few different forms of Pilates which are also listed below.

Hatha Yoga

The practice of physical postures, or asanas, which drive physical energy through precise verbal instructions with attention to detail and alignment. The emphasis is on conscious movement to develop strength, balance and concentration. 

Emotionally, this practice calms our nervous system and cleanses our minds of stress and tension leaving you with a feeling of wellbeing. Hatha can be translated in two ways. One as “willful” or “forceful,” the second as “sun” and “moon.” In these translations, we see the representation of the yoga of activity and the yoga of balance.
