Traditional Hatha yoga poses focus on keeping all the systems of the body healthy and balanced. It strengthens the joints, the spine, muscles, nourishes the nervous system, endocrine system, massages the internal organs and helps to improve stability and flexibility as well as focus and concentration.

The ultimate goal of Hatha Yoga is to balance “Ha” (Pingala) and “Tha” (Ida) to awaken Kundalini in the Sushumna channel. “Ha” refers to the more activating energy and “Tha” refers to the more calming energy. When in balance, we experience a state of harmony from within.

Hatha Yoga, which is associated with asanas (physical postures), pranayamas (breathing exercises),mudras and bandhas offers a range of physical, mental, emotional and energetic benefits. A consistent yoga practice improves our overall well being, creates space for regular encounters with yourself, boosts vitality, reduces stress and helps us connect with our true essence. Hatha Yoga also includes ethical guidelines and personal observances for living a meaningful and fulfilling life
