If life is hitting you like a Mack truck, making you feel exhausted, confused, and anything but yourself, you may need a hatha yoga break. Hatha yoga is great for taking a break from the crazy, hectic pace of life, slowing yourself down, and embracing the “present.” Our minds are so filled with the responsibilities we must meet, things to do, bills to pay, and other stressors, that we often feel overwhelmed. This is not a healthy state for your body or your mind. Hatha yoga is gentle, calming, and healing yoga.
A Little Bit About Hatha
Hatha is a Sanskrit word that means “force,” and is a form of yoga “emphasizing a system of physical postures for balancing, stretching, and strengthening the body” known as asanas. Therefore, hatha pretty much describes any and all yoga types, even if they seem different, including Iyengar yoga, Ashtanga yoga, and more. The hatha yoga postures are designed to open the main channel of the body which is the spine, as well as the other channels (chakras) so that energy can flow freely throughout. Although the name means force, it is gentle yoga but shouldn’t be thought of as easy since it is still both mentally and physically challenging.
