The word Hatha is a combination of two words ‘Ha’ meaning “Sun Energy” and ‘Tha’ meaning “Moon Energy” representing two Principle energies flowing within our body. When these two aspects of one’s self are integrated, a fullness of the whole personality is experienced.

Hatha yoga influences our two sides of the brain and brings balance between these two energies within all of us to merge from the opposite to the harmony of oneness.

Hatha Yoga is a powerful tool of transformation and the practitioner develops a balance of strength and flexibility.
