Yoga is an ancient Eastern Indian system of balancing body, mind, and emotions. The goal of yoga is to have a peaceful, clear mind in a sound, healthy body. Hatha Yoga is the aspect of yoga that approaches this goal through the physical side of the individual. The yoga postures (asanas) work each part of the body to stretch and strengthen the muscles, increase fluidity in the joints, and promote flexibility of the entire skeletal system. By releasing physical and mental tension through yoga asana and meditation, you can increase your energy, maintain your health and create a sense of well being.
