Hatha Yoga

Hatha Yoga

Hatha is also translated as Ha meaning “sun” masculine aspects—active, hot and tha meaning “moon” feminine aspects—receptive, cool. Hatha yoga is a path toward creating balance and uniting opposites.  Hatha yoga refers to a set of physical exercises (known as asanas or postures), and sequences of asanas, designed to align your skin, muscles, and bones. The postures are also designed to open the many channels of the body—especially the main channel, the spine—so that energy can flow freely. In our physical bodies we develop a balance of strength and flexibility. 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.
