Hatha yoga is known as the yoga for the physical body. In Sanskrit, “Ha” represents sun and “tha” represents moon.
Hathayoga is about finding balance.
Through working with the physical body, releasing tensions and traumas stored in the body, you create space in yourself
and, through that space and balance, the opportunity for spiritual growth.
The practice of Hatha historically, was used to prepare the body for extreme
and prolonged meditation so it is designed to release tension and stress in body and mind.
"Whether you do your first downward dog at 14 or 44,
it's not your history but your presence on the mat that counts."
