Hatha Yoga

Within the yoga tradition a methodology exists to reveal the interconnectedness of every living thing (advaita). It is the basis for all contemporary yoga practices and has two unique components, philosophy and practice. The practice and philosophy have a long history and rich depth of knowledge, both of which are essential elements to investigate. They create a powerful interplay with each component by informing and refining the other and forge a unity of body, mind and spirit.

The benefits of a regular yoga practice include:

• Stronger, more flexible body & the release of trauma, tension stored in the body.

• Calms the mind &creates space in your body, mind and spirit so you can find balance and the opportunity for spiritual growth in the space

• Better sleep & increased energy levels.

• Muscle tone &relief of muscle pain, stiffness.

• Improved circulation & the breathing aspect can benefit heart rate as well as blood pressure.

• Overall general better health.


Hatha Yoga

In Sanskrit, Hatha means force. Ha represents sun, Tha represents moon. This eludes to the opposition in our lives. Hatha yoga is known as yoga for the physical body and is the basis for all contemporary yoga practices. It’s about finding balance by working with your body to release physical tensions and traumas stored in your body. You create the space within yourself. Through this space, physical postures (asanas) and balance comes the opportunity for spiritual growth.

How does yoga relax your nervous system?

Yoga happens when the mind becomes quiet and this mental stillness created by bringing the mind, body and senses into balance.

Meditation

Meditation (dhyana) begins when you discover our never-ending quest to possess things, the continual craving for pleasure and security can never be satisfied. It is the actual experience of union, a state of pure consciousnesses. It’s the seventh stage of the yogic path and follows the art of concentration (dharana). When your external quest turns inward, you shift into the realm of meditation. Meditation techniques are simple and easy to learn but the ability to keep your mind focused takes time, patience and practice.

The benefits you experience from a regular meditation practice include:

• Reduction of stress, tension, anxiety and frustration.

• Improved memory and concentration.

• Inner peace.

• Whole body well-being.
