Hatha Yoga Explained

Hatha Yoga has been practiced for thousands of years and has a wide range of physical benefits due to moving the body through a variety of movements, postures or Asanas. It also consists of breath awareness and relaxation techniques.

Pranayama (prana means life force and pranayama is the practice of regulating and refining the breath) is an important aspect of the practice and can enhance health due to more oxygen in the blood stream. This leads to renewed energy and is calming for the mind. Meditation is normally practiced after the postures and is beneficial when practiced daily to help in awareness of mind patterns and emotions and to anchor us to the present.

The body can be realigned, strengthened and revitalized as the joints, connective tissue and muscles are benefitted. Back problems can be alleviated and the internal organs, nerves and hormonal systems are also positvely affected. Yoga is a path towards a holistic balancing of the body, mind and emotions. This moves us towards a state of relaxed but vibrant alertness where we can move through our daily life challenges and relish simple moments and our connections with people.

One pointed focus leads to an awareness of the present moment where there can be an acceptance of people and situations as they are. Whether you are a complete beginner or want to move forward in an established practice, a 1 to 1 session can offer guidance, new inspiration or solutions to back issues. Yoga complements other forms of exercise you may be doing and can enhance performance and focus.
