What is Hatha Yoga


Hatha Yoga Vidya reveals the action of holding firmly a body in a posture and mind in meditation along with breathe observance. It means power, aim, and gaze. Hatha Yoga is the route to achieve a state of perfection where the mind and the body are content (without the desire for it), blissful, and liberated. Hatha Yoga is an endeavor to victor the Mind (Mana), Knowledge (Vidya or jnana), Aims of Life (orpurusarthas), Health (Swashtha), and Suffering (Dukkha).
The science helps us explore the inner being and the two opposing forces that lie within each body leading us to a peaceful renunciation as when we ready for it. In Yoga Philosophy, the word Hatha is a composition of two syllables – ‘Ha’ and ‘Tha’. While ‘Ha’ represents the Solar Plexus (Sun or Surya).
Physiologically speaking, the science behind Hatha Yoga is based upon the system of Nadis, also known as the Neural Systems Networks. And, a ‘Nadi’ is the channel through which neurons are transmitted. The syllable ‘Ha’ signifies the ‘Ida’ Nadi belonging to the Parasympathetic Nervous System and the syllable ‘Tha’ represents the ‘Pingala’ Nadi belonging to the Sympathetic Nervous System. In between these Nadis, there is a Sushumna Nadi belonging to the ‘central channel’.
Hatha Yoga practice is responsible for balancing these Nadis which will awaken the Sushumna Nadi towards the crown arousing the Kundalini Shakti. The power channelizing the energy centers in the entire body by activating the six chakras in the body that are the principal centers of Nadis. Each chakra is responsible for specific functions in the body and requires balancing for perfecting the body’s mental and physical health – the method of which is Hatha Yoga meant.



The history of Hatha Yoga dates back to the ninth century when the art was developed by the line of Nath Gurus (Rishis who were Brahma Descendants) in the Northern Province of India. Swami Svatmarama, a Hatha Yogi and also a descendant of the Nath Guru lineage introduced the standardized Hatha Yoga practice in his book Hatha Yoga Pradipika – a book that became a symbol of reference and authentic resource for Hatha Yoga teachings for generations to come. After the Book of Hatha Yoga Pradipika, there have been many more traditional text books on the style, some of the most prominent being the GherandaSamhita, Hatha Ratnavali, Siva Samhita, Yoga Ratnavali, and many more.
It is the traditional yoga schools where the Hatha Yoga techniques are preserved and imparted in the purest form – contrary to several contemporary yoga schools and yoga practitioners.

Hatha Yoga Pradipika was written with the aim of taking a yogi to the image of the self through body and mind practices. Traditional Hatha Yoga explains that Samadhi (the ultimate goal) is the medium through which the mind dissolves in the consciousness, the awareness in the celestial intellect, the celestial brain in behavior, and finally, this celestial behavior inhibits the Universal Spirit (Brahman). The point at which ego, intelligence, and the mind are put at rest, the Self reaches the surface and acquires the state of Samadhi – the final stage of life and Hatha Yoga.
In the words of Lord Shiva, the Hatha Yoga wisdom is the first leap towards the attainment of Raja Yoga. The Pradipka that is divided into four parts explains the Yamas (Restraints or Rules), Niyamas(Adherences to certain rules), Asanas (poses), and Victuals (Food) during the first segment. The second part reflects upon Pranayama (Restraint or Regulation of Energy through Breath-Work), and the ShatKriyas (Yogic purification practices). The third part represents the Mudras (Gestures or seals), Bandhas (performed blocks), the Nadis (channels of energy through which prana ((or the breath) flows), and the Kundalini Energy. Finally, the fourth part describes the stage of Pratyahara (abandonment of the senses), Dharana (attentiveness), Dhyana (reflection), and Samadhi (absorption).
