Hatha Yoga is one of the most popular forms of yoga and is widely practiced around the world by laity and yogis. It considers that the physical form of the human body is the vehicle of the soul and is of great importance to physical discipline.
Physical discipline is carried out through "Asanas", "Pranayam" (breathing exercises) and meditation. Thanks to these activities, the body is shaped in a perfect receptacle for spiritual elements.
"Asanas" and "pranayamas" are used to power the energy channels called "Nadis". The help "Asanas" will develop the will, concentration and withdrawal of oneself, and allow the practitioner of Hatha Yoga to get closer to Samadhi, who is the yogic term for inner peace and happiness.
The "Asanas", which are well thought out of physical exercises, make the human body flexible and setter. They make the muscles stronger, energize the key organs, improve the coordination of the body and give the mind sufficient force to stay cool and relaxed in times of crisis.
"Pranayama" is just as important for Hatha Yoga's practice. It is through these breathing exercises that you activate and change vital vital energy (called "prana"). When this vital energy moves from the base of the spine at the top of the head, you can get Samadhi – the eternal happiness of inner peace and self-realization. This pipeline of "prana" is also called Kundalini Yoga, one of the many branches of Yoga from Hatha Yoga.
Hatha Yoga is a great way to get rid of stress, tension and anxiety. This also helps you improve your overall health and fitness.
