Hatha Yoga- this is the doctrine of psychophysical harmony achieved with the help of physical means of influencing the organism (diet, breathing, asanas, bandhas, mudras), and psychic means (meditation and concentration during the performance of asanas, pranayama).
In the ancient Vedic scriptures it is said that the Atma (soul) is trapped in five lifestreams (a stream of thin air, a flow of flat water, a stream of subtle fire, a stream of beautiful earth and ether), and only Hatha Yoga can release it from this captivity in order to achieve samadhi.
Each exercise in a certain way affects the desired part of the body, organ or group of organs. Specially selected complexes of asanas, in which the sequence of exercises plays an important role, apply to improve and strengthen health, to combat various ailments.
When performing asanas take into account: breathing (on delay, inhalation or exhalation); the point where attention should be directed. Some asanas have contraindications to fulfillment. Diseases, as the yogis believe, are the illegal distribution of the life energy (prana) in the body, and the satisfaction of specific asanas (as well as the performance of pranayama) leads to the correct redistribution of prana in the body, which cures diseases, both physical and mental.
Hatha Yoga helps you to get full health by using the hidden reserves of your organism, and by your own will, your will to achieve healing.
Yoga Iyengar is a kind of Hatha Yoga, founded by the yogi Iyengar. The Iyengar Yoga focuses on the correct position of the body so that it can harmoniously develop and become anatomically flawless. A characteristic feature of the method is the static execution of asanas with the necessary supports. Another unique feature of the process is a detailed, detailed explanation of each posture and an individual approach to each practitioner.
Iyengar yoga presupposes the study of asanas and pranayama, which in the Iyengar yoga includes all other higher stages of yoga, up to samadhi. An essential aspect of Iyengar yoga is the sequence of asanas. Iyengar yoga can also be used for medicinal purposes.
Iyengar Yoga has 200 asanas. The founder of spiritual practice personally experienced each of them. Since everyone has a different degree of training, individual physiological characteristics and some even have health problems, Iyengar suggested using various devices. Rollers, chairs, blankets, belts and other objects allow you to give the body the optimal position for asanas.
Another unique feature of Iyengar’s yoga is the development of a separate program exclusively for women. Given the fact that the female body has some physiological characteristics, and the emotional sphere of the representatives of the right half of humanity is more sensitive than that of men, the program is based on a unique set of exercises.
