What does Hatha means? Hatha is a sanscrit word which means 'willful' or 'forceful'. Also, it can be broken down into smaller parts
Ha - means 'sun'
Ta - means 'moon'
Hatha yoga is a tool used for physical and mental transformation. It is a branch of yoga primarily focused on mastery of the body through balancing the polarities like sun and moon.
Unlock-Me Yoga practice has been created in an attempt to self-heal after a lower back injury that took place at the chiropractor's office in 2013. My disk snapped, putting me out of commission for nine months. Devastated, went in circles trying to heal myself. Nothing worked until I realized that I can heal myself. It was the beginning of my awakening to realization of my own powers of self-healing. I had to run out of options before I finally began my journey of a personal transformation from inside out - starting with making small changes in diet and creating this morning routine for myself and watching my whole perception about this reality transform. What seemed to me a devastating event in 2013, now appears to be as a lucky injury, because it forced me to explore my own powers as a healer.
We'll be using specific postures 'asanas' in conjunction with controlled breathing to keep us present in the moment. Hatha yoga classes are a happy medium classes compared to fast-paced Vinyasa- style classes or slow-paced Yin-style classes. We'll be moving through some 'asanas' and hold other 'asanas' for a few breaths.
What do I need for the class?
We recommend several props:
Yoga mat: 1/8-inch yoga mat with a grippy texture—which keeps your joints supported and slip-free—will be perfect for a Hatha yoga class.
Yoga block(s): If your hand can’t reach the ground while you’re in a pose, you can use a yoga block. We recommend foam yoga blocks that can be also used as cushions for your knees.
