There are many branches of yoga, but in the west the most popular form is classical hatha yoga, often described as the physical path to spiritual realisation. Hatha yoga includes Ashtanga, Iyengar and dynamic flow styles of yoga.

The dedicated yoga student acknowledges that yoga is more than just stretching and practicing physical postures (asana), but also includes breathing exercises, relaxation and meditation. These principles are based on ancient teachings commonly known as the eight limbs of yoga.

Yoga works on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of us. Most ancient traditions recognise that the human body is more than its gross physical components, but also contains subtle channels, and layers of energy vibrating at different frequencies. There are five such energetic bodies or levels of experience. Yoga practice permeates every level.

  • Physical – the physical body is part of our waking conscious experience. Yoga practices such as diet, cleansing techniques, and postures (asana) are used to maintain physical health and well-being.
  • Energetic/pranic – part of our subtle body or subconscious. Pranayama consisting of correct breathing and breathing exercises work on this level to remove blockages stimulate and balance the pranic circulation.
  • Mental – a subconscious layer conditioned by stimulus response. Concentration and meditation help to focus this lower aspect of mind.
  • Intuitive/wisdom – also subconscious, the subtlest aspect of mind accessible through dreams, and deep meditation. Include practices such as study of scriptures, self-study and meditation.
  • Spiritual/transcendental – the experience of bliss, reflected in deep dreamless sleep. In this restful state there are no thoughts or sense of ego. A state where harmony, contentment and joy exist.

Hatha Yoga Therapy

Hatha Yoga is a relatively gentle, inward experience that involves both co-ordinating the breath with movement and holding postures. It is usually not an athletic or aerobic practice and less of a workout then some of the other dynamic styles. Hatha literally means Sun and Moon and is the linking of the active and passive aspects of nature. There is usually a focus on breath, movement, relaxation and meditation. Hatha yoga uses asana (postures) and pranayama (breath) to harmonize body, mind and emotions, and if practiced regularly, attune oneself with higher levels of awareness. An experienced yogi can awaken, experience and begin to control the subtle energies within oneself, especially the energies of the chakras.
