How Hatha Yoga works

Hatha yoga consists of postures (asanas) which involves lot of physical and mental regulation that stretches, strengthens the muscles making them flexible and lean. Choose the postures as per your level of mastery in Yoga and experience immediate relief from stress or any pain that you are suffering.
Hatha yoga consists of three parts:

1. Breathing (pranayama)
2. Postures (asanas)
3. Meditation (dhyana)

In short, controlled breathing soothes our mind. Pranayama is beneficial for our respiratory system and aids the breathing rate. Similarly, asanas such as forward bending, twisting and other postures motivate our body to get stronger. The final aspect of dhyana increases our concentration power making you more control of your emotions.

Hatha Yoga consists of various categories such as Shiva Samhita, Rocket Yoga, Jivamukti Yoga etc. For eg: Jivamukti Yoga includes adhering to five principle, shastra (scripture), bhakti (devotion), ahimsa (non-harming), nāda (music), and dhyana (meditation) and is currently a trend amongst many celebrities.
