Hatha Yoga is an ancient philosophy or discipline which originated in India in the 15th century. The Hatha Yoga Pradipika lists 35 yoga poses and from this original list yoga has evolved to how we know it today.
There are many varieties of Yoga that have become very popular in the modern world, Ashtanga, Iyengar, Sivananda to name a few. Hatha Yoga is particularly popular with total beginners to yoga.
Hatha yoga 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, you create the opportunity for spiritual growth.
Hatha Yoga is a slow-paced class, consisting of asanas (postures or poses). It does not have the flow that you may might find in some of the more energetic classes but it’s a great place to start if you are new to yoga want to advance or deepen your practice.
The practice of Hatha Yoga historically, was used to prepare the body for extreme and prolonged meditation so it is designed to release tension and stress in the mind and body.
