What is Hatha Yoga in a nut shell?
Yoga of the body… healthy body = healthy mind.
Hatha is a general term for most yoga styles we see today. Specifically, it is the original style of Yoga as we know it in westernised society – it harmonises the body & mind through Asanas (yoga poses) and Pranayama (breathing techniques) in preparation for the deeper spiritual practice of Meditation.
Do you have to be spiritual to enjoy Hatha?
No. The best thing about Yoga is that you can be on whatever spiritual path you choose (if any). It’s inclusive and non-discriminatory by its innate nature. Every one can feel the benefits of this practice whether young or old, athletic or rounded. Once finished with a Hatha class you will feel rejuvenated, energised, optimistic, refreshed and all those cuddly adjective words 🙂
