Hatha yoga is the most common type of yoga found in most Western countries. Rooted in ancient tradition, this form of yoga focuses on the practice of various physical postures intended to improve flexibility, strength, and mindfulness. For a complete mind-body experience, you can join classes in yoga and meditation at Brisbane’s Hanger 66 as part of a unique fitness session designed for yogis of all levels and backgrounds.
How Hatha Yoga Improves Your Body and Mind
The primary intent of hatha yoga is to balance both the body and mind. You can see this balance in the meaning behind the word ‘hatha’ itself, where ‘ha’ represents the sun, and ‘tha’ represents the moon. Combined, it signifies the joining of two seemingly opposite parts—a perfect metaphor for aligning both the body and the mind toward wholeness and a common purpose. When you take classes for hatha yoga in Brisbane at Hanger 66, you will have the opportunity to achieve this sense of balance through our guided, restorative sessions that incorporate both yoga and meditation.
While you can get started with hatha yoga at home, when you work with a trainer or join a group class, you will have the opportunity to improve your technique and potentially reap greater rewards. A trained instructor can help gently guide you toward mastering certain positions, while doing yoga in a group gives you the opportunity to make new friends and join a community of like-minded folks who are also interested in getting started with yoga in the South Brisbane area.
