Dynamic Hatha

What is it?

There is often confusion about this branch of yoga. Many people think that the term “Hatha Yoga” refers exclusively to asanas and pranayama. The goal of practicing asanas and pranayama is the same as for any other form of sadhana yoga (practice to improve oneself): the realization of a higher energy. Asanas and pranayama are tools that are used to gain control over the mind and prana (life force) and to ultimately reach that goal.

 

Asanas and pranayama are just two of the hatha yoga techniques. The practitioner should try to live his life according to the ethical and moral bases of yoga, as well as practice meditation. Hatha yoga begins with the practice of the physical body. And little by little, gaining control over the physical, the practitioner tries to gain control over the prana… and through the control of prana, one gains control over the mind.
