Hatha Yoga

Hatha Yoga Hatha Yoga is a particular system of Yoga described in 15th century India. Hatha Yoga differs substantially from the Raja Yoga of Patanjali as it focuses on shatkarma, the purification of the physical body as leading to the purification of the mind, and prana, or vital energy. Compared to the seated asana, or sitting meditation posture, of Patanjali's Raja yoga, it marks the development of asanas into the full body postures now in popular usage. Hatha Yoga in its many modern variations is the style that many people associate with the word "Yoga" today.
