Hatha yoga asks us to bring our attention to our breath, which helps us to still the fluctuations of the mind, and be more present in each moment. Hatha yoga also helps relax the body and fight stress. While the practice of hatha yoga is slower paced, it is by no means a gentle practice. Hatha is also broken down as ‘ha’ meaning ‘sun’ and ‘tha’ meaning ‘moon’. This refers to the balance of the masculine – sun, hot, active – and the feminine – moon, cool, receptive – within all of us. Hatha yoga is a path toward creating balance of strength and flexibility. We learn to balance our effort and surrender in each pose.
