The focus on Hatha yoga

Hatha is a branch of yoga, which is also popularly known as Hathavidya. "Hatha" in Sanskrit means "forceful". It incorporates a set of physical techniques known as asanas, or postures. These asanas are designed to align your body. Hatha yoga is not exercise. Rather than that, it is about understanding the mechanism of your body, using different body postures so that your energy flows in specific directions.

Hatha yoga consists of eight limbs focused on attaining samadhi. If you have ever observed your body during different emotions, such as anger, anxiety, or happiness, you may notice that when you are happy, you sit in a particular posture and when you are sad, you sit in another posture. That actually means in different states of emotion and situations, your body attains different postures naturally. The opposite of this is called science of asanas, or postures. Hatha yoga teaches complete balance of flexibility and strength in the body. At Ek Omkar Yoga, Hatha classes incorporate classical yoga poses and emphasize on proper alignment and breathing. They believe that Hatha yoga is the supreme tool for self-realization.
