DIVINE YOGA STUDIO
Divine Yoga is a modern yoga studio designed with all natural resources established in the heart of Thamel, Kathmandu. Yoga is the art of balancing physical, mental and spiritual awareness with higher consciousness.
TYPES OF YOGA AT OUR STUDIO
Hatha yoga is a term that refers to any type of yoga that teaches physical postures. Nearly every type of yoga class taught in the West is Hatha yoga. When a class is marketed as Hatha, it generally means that you will get a gentle introduction to the most basic yoga postures. You probably won't work up a sweat in a hatha yoga class, but you should end up leaving class feeling longer, looser, and more relaxed.
Vinyasa (pronounced "vin-yah-sah") is a Sanskrit word for a phrase that roughly translates as "to place in a special way," referring—in hatha yoga—to a sequence of poses. Vinyasa classes are known for their fluid, movement-intensive practices. Vinyasa teachers sequence their classes to smoothly transition from pose to pose, with the intention of linking breath to movement, and often play music to keep things lively. The intensity of the practice is similar to Ashtanga, but no two vinyasa classes are the same. If you hate routine and love to test your physical limits, vinyasa may be just your favorite.
Ashtanga is based on ancient yoga teachings. It's a rigorous style of yoga that follows a specific sequence of postures and is similar to vinyasa yoga, as each style links every movement to a breath. The difference is that Ashtanga always performs the exact same poses in the exact same order. This is a sweaty, physically demanding practice.
The word meditation does not have the same meaning in east as in the west. Meditation is an inner journey to explore within. Most of the time, we are extroverted. In order to seek the supreme consciousness we do meditation. In meditation there is intense concentration and refined understanding. It brings to live happy, solace, peace even in crowd. Main goal of meditation is to attain our true nature: Pure Consciousness.
