Traditionally, yoga poses are known as asanas—or the physical postures we make with the body during a yoga class. There are many yoga positions, and depending on the style of class you choose, the poses may or may not follow a certain sequence. The yoga poses were created due to their physiological benefits on the physical and energetic levels.

Yoga Poses

Ashtanga Yoga, for example, will always follow a specific sequence of yoga postures. This enables the individual to build familiarity and routine in their practice. However, other styles such as Hathaand Vinyasa, do not follow a certain sequence, so each class will be different. However, you will often see the same yoga poses incorporated through many of the classes.

Yoga poses (or yoga postures) are often divided according to level. There are certain poses that are considered foundational or suitable for a beginner. Once the practitioner develops a certain level of comfort and strength in the foundational poses, more intermediate and advanced postures can be introduce. So, we encourage you to build into the more advanced postures, slowly and over time. This enables you to gain the most out of your practice, without getting injured.

The practice of yoga is not about what shapes you can make with your body or whether or not your leg can reach behind your head. Traditionally, the yoga postures were used as a purification and preparation for the more subtle aspects of yoga—primarilypranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation.

At The House of Yoga, you can explore the poses in focused practices or take a full class on the platform.
