Hatha Yoga

Without any doubt Hatha Yoga is the most popular yoga style. Furthermore a lot of other yoga types are developed from this one, including Kundalini Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga and Jivamukti Yoga to name just a few. The sage Yogi Swatmarama introduced the system of Hatha Yoga in the 15 th century in India, compiling the writing Hatha Yoga Pradipika. Other important texts of this yoga style are the Gheranda Samhita and the Shiva Samhita. The word “hatha” means power or violence which makes clear that this yoga style emphasizes the corporal aspect and the effort that is necessary to reach the goal of balancing mind and body. In addition “hatha” represents opposing energies like male and female or sun and moon. Hatha Yoga uses asanas, pranayama and meditation to achieve better health and spirituality. Due to the slow style with longer holding of the postures, easy breathing exercises and meditation techniques this yoga form is very relaxing and ideal for beginners and yoga retreats.
