What is Hatha yoga?

According to Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, there are eight limbs of yoga; out of which the only one involves postures (asana). Hatha means forceful or determined in Sanskrit. Hatha yoga includes a set of 84 asanas (postures) that are designed to align the body and to line up its physical channels so that the energy can easily flow (especially in the spine). The word Hatha is translated as Ha- the sun which is masculine and Tha- the moon which is feminine, which in turn represents the balance in nature and also within you all.

Through Hatha yoga, you can create balance and unite the opposites. Hatha teaches you the balance of strength and flexibility in each pose. It has immense health benefits and is an efficient way to distress. The teachers at Upaya believe Hatha to be a powerful tool for self-realization and transformation, teaching them various techniques to master control over the body by skillful breathing and meditation practices.
