What is Hatha Yoga?

Hatha Yoga is a traditional form of Yoga that has its roots in India. The term Hatha is derived from the Sanskrit Ha, meaning "sun," and Tha, meaning "moon." The practice aims to unite the active and receptive qualities represented by each celestial being. Practitioners of Hatha yoga use physical alignment and breathing control to achieve an equilibrium between the active body and the universe. The resulting harmony manifests itself as physical strength, mindfulness, psychological health, and emotional well-being. Each Hatha Yoga class consists of relaxation (savasana), physical postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), and finally meditation (dhyana) which helps acquire a clear and serene mind.
