Hatha Yoga is also known as traditional yoga. In the word Hatha, "ha" means the sun, and "ta" means the moon. It represents the balance between male and female, day and night, yin and yang, cold and heat, and any other complementary opposites.
After applying this concept, it means that by exercising equal flexibility and strength at the two poles of the body, they are brought into a state of balance. It also represents keeping the left and right brains in a balanced state, so that the logical and arithmetic left brain and the creative and intuitive right brain can coexist harmoniously and play a balanced role.
In yoga, breathing through the right nostril is called the breath of the sun, and breathing through the left nostril is called the breath of the moon. Keeping breathing smooth in some way is essential to all the practice of Hatha Yoga.
Traditional Hatha Yoga is an ancient yoga system. When practicing, control your breathing, practice slowly with deep breathing, and emphasize complete relaxation. This is a practice without a sense of competition, emphasizing the feeling of each individual, rather than being perfect. The whole person is fully concentrated, and the body and spirit work in harmony, bringing happiness to the body and spirit. The real power of this system is that it is a path to eternal happiness and inner freedom.
