Hatha Yoga for modern lifestyle

Hatha Yoga – A traditional yoga technique for modern lifestyle

The Hatha yoga is the foundation of all yoga forms. It is the ancient, traditional yoga practice that was introduced thousands of years ago. In Hatha yoga, we aim to balance ida and pingala, the left and right energy channels (nadis) of our body to awaken the shushumna nadi, the main and central energy channel. This can be achieved through asana and later on pranayama.The asana practice in hatha yoga is very gentle and soft. By describing it as soft, we don’t mean “easy”. The postures can be very challenging, however, the approach to master them comes step by step. In the Hatha practise, we always begin with a good warm up to prepare our body for the more advanced poses and prevent injuries and overstretching. A good warm-up is 10-15 min long and smoothens all joins, muscles, and tendons. After the warm-up, a class often begins with sun salutations and then goes over to 4-7 asanas with modifications. In the Hatha practice, the postures are often held over longer periods to improve the flexibility and adjust the body in the various asanas. A posture can be held for approximately 1-3 minutes. This does not only help to get into the posture but also aims to focus the mind, make it more steady. Asana means “steady posture”. At the end of a class, you will be laying in shavasana for 10 minutes, flat on your back with eyes closed. During shavasana, your body gets time to fully relax, let go of any tension and fully sink into the ground. Overall, we can say that Hatha Yoga is the most effective, smoothest and most balancing type of yoga.

September 2017: Yoga Teacher Training

Namaste dear Yoga Teacher Training Yogis & Yoginis!

Our September 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training India & 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training India Course comes to an end and we are very proud of what you have achieved so far!

Not only have you powered through the intense schedule and been to class by 6 AM every morning, we also have become good friends during this month and created a beautiful energy together.

We see a lot of progress in each one of you: you become more confident, free, joyful and relaxed day by day.

The highlights of this month were definitely your interest in the yoga philosophy classes, Ayurveda, and yoga adjustment classes.

We also enjoyed the mantra music jam sessions at night a lot.

Music truly connects us even more deeply with one another as we don’t need to speak the same language!

Hopefully, you will like the volunteering work we have organized for you this week!

Please share your experiences here with us 🙂
