Announcing our new yoga challenge: #backtotraditionalhatha! My yogi buddy @irya_devi and I are super happy to be organizing this new challenge together and with the collaboration of a bunch of amazing sponsors. As many of you may already know, we’re both certified Classical Hatha Yoga teachers, and we’ve undergone training in very traditional ashrams. We both love yoga challenges and trying out new styles, but it’s been a while since we’ve starting feeling that it’d be interesting to bring things back to its roots and share a basic type of yoga which doesn’t seem to be as popular on SNS. .
Classical Hatha Yoga doesn’t flow; there are no transitions and it’s rather static, which means it may not be as flashy os spectacular as other more modern or Westernized styles. Because of this, many young people fail to find it attractive. However, these are the origins of yoga: a static practice. Vinyasa (flows) were not introduced until the early 20th century with the teachings of Sri Krishnamacharya.
With this challenge, we’d like to bring you into the world of Classical Yoga and debunk the myth that this is a practice “for the elderly”, as Rosa and I often jokingly say. This is actually a practice that, with the right awareness, can be physically just as demanding as other yoga styles.
In order to do this, we’ve chosen the Sivananda system - an internationally recognized style of Classical Hatha Yoga. If you’d like to learn more about it, don’t hesitate and jump in!
In addition, our sponsors will be giving away a bunch of fantastic goodies at the end of the challenge to 6 winners :)
