Yoga practitioners of different age groups from all over the world come together to practice hatha yoga here at the school.
Hatha yoga is a series of asana’s designed to align your body. The postures are designed to open the many channels of the body –especially the main channel the spine so that energy can flow freely.
Hatha is also translated as ha meaning “sun” and tha meaning “moon”. These two fundamentals ha and tha are prana and apana. These can give control over the mind which is Raja yoga. It also refers to the balance of the masculine aspects- active, hot, sun and female aspects – receptive, cool, moon within all of us.
Hatha yoga is a path towards creating balance and uniting opposites. In our physical bodies we develop 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 or self-realization. It is a complete and integral system of spiritual development for body, mind and spirit. In bringing attention to our breath it helps to still the fluctuations of the mind and be more present.
