Hatha Yoga

What does Hatha mean?

The word Hatha ( Ha, meaning "sun" and Tha meaning "moon" ) means willful or forceful. This refers to the balance of masculine aspects , active, hot, sun- and feminine aspects, receptive, cool, moon, within all of us. Hatha Yoga is a path toward creating balance and uniting opposites. In our physical bodies we develop a balance of strength and flexibility. Hatha Yoga refers to a set of physical exercises known as Asanas or postures.

Sequences of asanas are designed to align:

  • Skin
  • Muscles
  • Bones

The postures are also designed to open many channels of the body especially the main channel, The Spine, so that energy can flow freely. We also learn to balance our effort and surrender in each pose. Hatha Yoga is a powerful tool for self-transformation. It asks us to bring our attention to our breath, which helps us to still the fluctuations of the mind and be more present in the unfolding of each moment.
