What means Hatha Yoga?
Ha -means sun, Tha – means moon, YOGA: UNION
Yoga is an ancient philosophical and body practice suitable for all ages and physical conditions (also when pregnant). It brings deep and lasting benefits on the physical, mental and spiritual body.
At Le Poggiola we offer yoga following in the Himalayan Masters Tradition
Breathing (Pranayama) is the point of union between mind and body. Breathing practices aim to fluidity, depth, becoming valuable tools to improve the condition of the nervous system (great for menopause), and the agitated mind (such as anxiety).
This is the peculiarity of the Tradition of the Himalayan Masters, where the mind educates the body but at the same time, with practice body, mindfulness focuses on the “here and now”.
Hatha Yoga is also essential to prepare for Meditation: The essay Patanjalj (who codified yoga passed down orally until then), shows eight steps that constitute the Raja Yoga. The first, is the practice of Asana and Pranayama until you get to the higher levels as the Meditation (Dhyana), fundamental practice to the “Supreme Joy”: the “Samadhy”, the aim of Raja Yoga.
Doing yoga is therefore possible to obtain the benefits: the nervous system, muscle, bone, endocrine, respiratory, digestive and circulatory systems.
You get a better management of emotions, (which often occur with recurring aches and pains), self-esteem, panic attacks, poor vitality and depression.
