A Gentle Introduction to Mindful Movement

Hatha yoga is one of the oldest forms of yoga, with its roots dating back to ancient India. The term "Hatha" is a combination of two Sanskrit words: "ha," which means sun, and "tha," which means moon. This reflects the balance of opposites, symbolizing the balance between the active, heating, and purifying aspects (represented by the sun) and the receptive, cooling, and nurturing aspects (represented by the moon).

The traditional purpose of Hatha yoga was to prepare the body for meditation and spiritual practices. It emphasizes physical postures (asanas), breath control (pranayama), and meditation. The practice aims to bring a balance between strength and flexibility, and it often involves slow and gentle movements.

The positive effects of Hatha yoga include improved flexibility, increased strength, enhanced posture, stress reduction, and a sense of overall well-being. It is particularly suitable for beginners due to its gentle nature and emphasis on proper alignment and breathing.
