Yoga - For a Healthier Body and Mind

Yoga refers to traditional physical and mental disciplines originating in India.  Yoga is an ancient system of techniques that helps in your overall health and well-being.  Outside India, the term yoga is typically associated with Hatha Yoga and its asanas (postures) or as a form of exercise.

The word Hatha comes from combining the two Sanskrit terms "ha" meaning sun and "tha" meaning moon.  The word "ha" refers to the solar nadi (pingala) in the subtle body and "tha" the lunar channel (ida). However, when the two components of the word are placed together, "hatha" means "forceful", implying that powerful work must be done to purify the body.

Hatha represents opposing energies: hot and cold (fire and water, following similar concept as yin-yang), male and female, positive and negative.  Hatha yoga attempts to balance mind and body via physical postures or "asanas", purification practices, controlled breathing, and the calming of the mind through relaxation.  Asanas teach poise, balance and strength and are practised to improve the body's physical health and clear the mind.  The Hatha yoga predominantly practised in the West consists of mostly asanas understood as physical exercises.  It is also recognized as a stress-reducing practice.
