Why Hatha Yoga is Popular?
Hatha yoga is one of the many forms of yoga that are practiced today and is highly popular because it is gentle and easy to follow even for beginners. Hath yoga is a complete practice that incorporates asanas, pranayamas, cleansing rituals and chants to form a cohesive whole that brings rounded benefits to the practitioner.
The physical aspect of Hatha yoga impacts the body and leaves it flexible, well balanced and strong ensuring good health in all parts of the anatomy and it clears the mind of all impediments. Mastering of asanas is not the aim of Hatha yoga but it is the vehicle that is required in order to achieve a state of relaxation where random thoughts can be kept at bay and the mind free to meditate.
In ancient times Hatha yoga was the channel that would help to reach the spiritual state of Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhi. However, today Hatha yoga has been adopted to bring the practitioner relief from the stress of all kinds leading to a state of total relaxation. Since Hatha yoga opens up the energy channels or naris that allows for free flow of energy leading to a more physically fit and healthy body. Hatha yoga not only makes the muscles flexible and builds bone strength but massages the internal organs and tones them in a way that prevents diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure. Breathing exercises help to control asthma and bronchitis.
Hatha yoga helps not only the body but also increases your concentration and willpower. Once you practice Hatha yoga regularly you will be able to identify you’re hidden mental and physical strengths. Hatha yoga asanas should be practiced only after learning them from a yoga-trained teacher to prevent injury and get the best benefits.
