Hatha Yoga is the Yoga system introduced by Yogi Swatmarama in his book Hatha Yoga Pradipika, approximately in the 15th century in India. This yoga system is the most popular in the world and the easiest to practice as it is adaptable to all types of people and any age.
"Hatha" of the Sanskrit "ha" - sun and "tha" - moon, this yoga method aims to unite opposing pairs, such as the sun (representation of the positive) and the moon (representing the negative) The balance between body and mind.
Its practice incorporates postures (asanas), breathing exercises (pranayama) and meditation / concentration / relaxation (dharana and dhyana).
Like other yoga schools, it aims to transcend consciousness, but the methodology used is based on strengthening the physical. Its practitioners believe that the body must be well worked and prepared to withstand the power and weight of spiritual upliftment. Still in the yogic vision, asanas should be practiced with awareness and focus on the goals of Hatha Yoga, respecting the limits of the body and seeking to achieve relaxation.
Yoga classes take place every Monday at the Holistika studio, between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and can take place anywhere in nature, as long as previously requested by groups.
