Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga

The yoga I teach is based on two different traditional and authentic yoga styles.

I understand the pace we live our lives and how we often crave a sense of tranquility, silence and stillness that we only seem to enjoy when on holiday, on a beach or on top of a mountain.

When one has that feeling of being overwhelmed and exhausted; when you simply can't see the wood for the trees -

I have discovered that yoga can bring back a stillness and peace, allowing clarity and positivity to re-emerge.

What is the difference between Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga?

The main difference between a Hatha and Vinyasa yoga is the pace and the goal of the practice.

Hatha yoga, is designed to align and calm your mind, body and spirit. Although you might break a little bit of a sweat, depending on your fitness level, this isn't a workout that's meant to get your heart racing.


There's a misconception that Hatha yoga could be "boring" because of its gentle pace. However, it is important to remember its purpose of focusing on breathing and channeling your energy.

Vinyasa yoga, on the other hand, is a bit faster-paced, requiring the coordinating of your movement and breath whilst flowing from one pose to the next. Vinyasa classes often repeat series of poses and often involve increasing body heat - and sweat - and building strength.

"Roessa's classes leave you feeling that that they were tailored made for you...

She's incredible!"

"Roessa provides really well thought out classes which flow effortlessly. The time just whizzes by. 

And later I sleep like a dream".
