Hatha Yoga has been practiced for more than 5000 years. It is the basis from which the other yoga styles have grown. It was created by monks with the main goal of keeping the body healthy so that they could spend their days meditating carefree. The Classical Hatha Yoga postures work mainly on the internal organs. They stimulate digestion, the hormone system, the blood circulation and the removal of waste products.
Hatha Yoga consists of slow postures, asanas, which help to steer the breath and keep the body and mind healthy.
Breathing, pranayama, is essential in yoga. The guided breathing exercises go hand in hand with the asanas. They provide vital life energy and help broaden your awareness. Through regular practice of Hatha Yoga you can notice a lot of benefits in your body and in your state of mind. Ailments such as insomnia, headaches, difficult digestion and more are relieved.
