But more commonly true concept of hatha is still unknown to many people.The word “hatha” is made of the roots ha, meaning “sun,” and tha, meaning “moon,” and that term was chosen to convey the idea that in our physical practices, we're striving to integrate the “solar” & “lunar” energies of the body.

These two major flow of energies known as “PINGLA” nadi and “IDA” nadi. By the practice of hatha yoga we focus on bring the balance of these two nadi because all physical and mental function happens through these nadis. Once we are able to balance the both flow (pingla and ida) third most important nadi which known as sushumnanadi get activated. Activation of sushumnanadi allows the kundalini (dormant energy) to rise up through the sushumnanadi.

Our training courses include the study of theories and practices of Hatha Yoga Asanas, Pranayama, Meditation, Kriyas, and Alignment and Adjustment Workshop by our highly experienced teachers. This course will prepare you with all the tools and confidence you need to become a yoga teacher and will inspire you forward on your personal yoga journey.
