Vinyasa

Vinyasa, like all yoga styles, originated from Hatha yoga. The word “vinyasa” can be translated as “arranging something in a special way,” like yoga poses for example. In vinyasa yoga classes, students coordinate movement with breath to flow from one pose to the next.
Teachers lead classes that flow from one pose to the next without stopping to talk about the finer points of each pose. That way, students come away with a good workout as well as a yoga experience. Ashtanga, Baptiste Yoga, Jivamukti, Power Yoga, and Prana Flow could all be considered vinyasa yoga. Vinyasa is also the term used to describe a specific sequence of poses (Chaturanga to Upward-Facing Dog to Downward-Facing Dog) commonly used throughout a vinyasa class.
If you’re new to yoga, it is a good idea to take a few classes in a slower style of yoga first. Like Hatha yoga to get a feel for the poses.

Hatha

Most forms of yoga in the West can be classified as Hatha Yoga. Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. The word “hatha” can be translated to “forceful,” or the yoga of activity, and as “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha), the yoga of balance.
It is an old system that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises), which help bring peace to the mind and body. When a class is marketed as Hatha, it generally means that you will get a gentle introduction to the most basic yoga postures. Hatha practices are designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit in preparation for meditation

Yin

Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of time involves variations of seated and supine poses typically held for 3 to 5 minutes, accessing deeper layers of fascia. This practice is designed to help you sit longer, and more comfortably, in meditation by stretching connective tissue around the joints (mainly the knees, pelvis, sacrum, and spine). It is a more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a interconnecting. A passive practice, that gives you the tools to slowly open up and get ready to explore the underlying depths of your physical, mental and emotional being.
