Hatha yoga is the type of yoga that is most widely practiced in the West, when westerners refer to ‘yoga’, they usually – without even knowing it themselves – mean Hatha yoga. This ‘path’ of yoga emphasizes physical strength and control. The word Hatha means “forceful”. Although this may not be a word that you immediately associate with yoga, the practices of Hatha yoga can indeed be powerful.
Hatha yoga, which includes several styles such as Astanga, Vinyasa and Yin employs a combination of physical posture, breathing exercises, cleansing processes and mindful awareness. It is a fascinating and exciting journey!
