Hatha Yoga is an ancient Indian spiritual practice, the doctrine of physical harmony. One of the main goals of hatha yoga is to bring the body to a state of full health so that it does not burden the person in search of higher truths. The term "Hatha" has a profound philosophical meaning: "Ha" - the Sun (man's beginning), "Tha" - the Moon (female beginning). Yoga in Sanskrit means "union", "unity". Hatha yoga is an ancient system that helps to bring into harmony and harmony the opposite principles existing in man.
The main aspect of hatha yoga is the development of flexibility and the maintenance of joints, especially the spine. Each exercise affects a certain part of the body, organ or group of organs, so an important role is played by the sequence of asanas. When performing hatha yoga exercises, breath is taken into account (exercises can be done on delay, on inhalation or exhalation), as well as the point / place in the body where attention should be focused.
