Classical Hatha Yoga is the practice of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras 8-fold path called Ashtanga yoga. Along the path are 8 stages beginning with 5 ethical practices and 5 moral behaviours to train the mind for concentration and meditation. The yoga postures known as asanas (the third stage) is often the most tangible way to focus the mind, cleanse the body and prepare for meditation.
Practical part of Classical Hatha Yoga is a set of exercises focused on eliminating energy blockages and freeing the joints in the body (Sukshma Vyayama), body alignment, awareness and expansion of the breath and observing the mind.
Classical system of Hatha Yoga that has been developed and taught by a Master teacher and handed down to their disciple. It is not a hybrid or popularised version of yoga, but a direct lineage that is taught by the Master to the student.
The practice consists of Surya Namaskara sequence (Sun salutations) combined with breath regulation (Pranayama), standing and balancing postures, back bends, forward bends, twists, prone and supine postures. The closing sequence ranges from inversions to rest and relaxation.
