Hatha Yoga literally translates as, “the yoga of force.” It incorporates breathing techniques (pranayama) and physical poses (asanas). It is a powerful combination of skillfully placing the body in different positions and the conscious control of breathing while in those positions.
The combination and connection of the two are meant to synchronize the body-mind, bringing them into harmony. Hatha Yoga is as an excellent preventative activity, as well as a system that can reduce many systems of chronic ailments and diseases. The class is designed for all levels, from a first-time student to an experienced one.
