Hatha Yoga – The first step to start your yoga practise

Hatha Yoga – The first step to start your yoga practice

Which yoga styles have you tried out or heard of? There is aerial yoga, power yoga, ashtanga yoga, vinyasa flow, aqua yoga, yin yoga, Bikram yoga, and even beer and dog yoga. Just to name a few.

If you are a yoga beginner and think of joining a regular yoga class, you might wonder which style to chose.

It is not advisable to start with too fast and dynamic styles like ashtanga or power yoga. To prevent knee damage and other injuries, you should consider beginning your yoga practice with a smooth, balancing, and restorative form of yoga.

Hatha Yoga is the foundation of all the yoga forms we know today. From Hatha Yoga, all other styles and types developed. Especially over the past decade, people have become inventive in creating the most extraordinary types of yoga.

Hatha Yoga was first introduced in India more than 5000 years ago. Did you know that the word Hatha comes from Sanskrit, one of the most complex and fascinating languages there is?

Ha means Sun and Tha means Moon. The aim of Hatha Yoga is to achieve harmony between the different energies in the body: between male and female, sun and moon, ida and pingala.

Ida and Pingala are also called the left and right Nadi (energy channel). By integrating both of them, Sushumna Nadi awakens the main energy channel.

Chose Hatha Yoga to begin your practice

Starting your yoga practice with hatha yoga brings you many benefits:

  • Prevent injuries and overstrain of joints and muscles
  • Smoothens and tones your body gently
  • Balances the left and right energy channels and awakens Sushumna Nadi
  • Balances your female and male energies
  • Strengthens the whole body equally
  • Helps you to understand the roots of yoga
  • Offers you to practice any yoga style later on

In Hatha yoga, a class usually begins with a 10 to 15-minute warm-up. This is very helpful to wake up your muscles, joints, and tendons. You can avoid muscles pain and injuries through the proper warm-up.

During the Hatha class, your teacher will select 6-7 asanas that you will learn in-depth. A focus is put on holding the positions and increasing your flexibility.

During the final relaxation, you get the chance to feel the changes in your body while letting go of all tensions and worries.
