Hatha yoga is a branch of yoga that focuses on the physical practice of yoga postures and breathing exercises.
One of Hatha yoga’s main benefits is that it can help improve flexibility and physical strength.
Hatha yoga postures, or asanas, are designed to improve balance and coordination. These mindful actions also tone and stretch your muscles.
As well as increase lung capacity through the conscious breathing practice of Pranayama, or breath control.
Another benefit of Hatha yoga, as it is for all the forms of yoga I teach, is that it can help reduce stress and promote relaxation.
Hatha yoga can also be beneficial for those who want to improve their spiritual health.
Hatha yoga is personally one of my favorite forms of yoga to teach because it’s so accessible. It’s suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels.
How I personally teach this form of yoga is to start with basic postures, and gradually progress to more advanced postures.
