One of the popular choices amongst fitness enthusiasts today, Hatha yoga teaches a combination of asanas and breathing exercises. Hatha is the branch of yoga in which we use the physical practices – including postures, breathwork, dietary selection, and other “external” means – to build better control of our thoughts in order to move ultimately toward one-mindedness. This yoga is the practice of uniting opposite pairs such that the body align to facilitate flow of energy. Regular practice of Hatha yoga helps control your senses, improves concentration and balance. It helps one overcome physical and mental obstacles so that positive energy flows freely inside the body.
