Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in India
The Hatha Yoga is the basic and traditional style of yoga, introduced by yogic sage Swatmarama around 500 years ago in India. The other styles of yoga which we practice today such as Ashtanga yoga, Bikram yoga and Power yoga are originated from it. It seems the most suitable style of yoga to start the journey of yoga as it is very compatible for yoga beginners. It is a kind of preparatory stage in yoga which prepares the body and mind to experience higher possibilities in yoga.
Hatha means willful or forceful. It comprises of two words “Ha” which stands for “sun” and “Tha” which stands for “moon”. Sun and moon represent opposite energies. So, the objective of Hatha yoga is to create harmony between the opposites - masculine (hot, active) and feminine aspects (cool, receptive) of the one’s personality. Hatha Yoga comprises of asanas and pranayama (breathing exercises) which are also the third and fourth limbs in the eight-limbed yoga – Ashtanga yoga. So, Hatha Yoga is originated to achieve the spiritual connection with cosmos by creating harmony between body and mind through asanas and pranayama.
Asanas are body postures that bring divinity and various health benefits. The Pranayama is the ancient science to control prana (life-force or energy). It is considered highly effective in controlling one’s mind and in activating the dormant energy centers inside our body.
