One of the most popular branches of yoga, the origin of this yogic practice can be traced to the Sanskrit word ‘Hatha’ that translates to being forceful or obstinate. As opposed to its name, this yoga practice does not include asanas that must be done forcefully. Rather, the positive connotation of the word ‘Hatha’ is implied that it requires one to stay dedicated and focused while doing them. Designed to ring in a sense of calm over the body and mind, the Hatha yoga asanas focus on breathing and channeling the energy too. These poses combine physical postures and breathing techniques that are practiced slowly than other yoga exercises.
Hatha yoga is not about twisting the body into various shapes or balancing it on one’s head or just holding your breath. This kind of yoga involves preparing the body to allow for higher energy possibilities. It takes a lot of practice for a body to enter into a deeper form of meditation. Practicing Hatha yoga regularly prepares the body gently to achieve this level of spiritual growth.
