Traditional Hatha Yoga is an ancient practice of physical and spiritual
Centuries before the modern revisions / 'schools', lineages of Western Yoga, there was Traditional Yoga .. a systematic method of self-discovery, mental acuity, and spiritual exploration.
Traditional Hatha Yoga, in its most traditional form, is Vinyasa Krama, or “breath-movement-sequence methodology”.
By integrating the functions of body, mind and breath - all at once - the Yoga student will experience the true joy of Yoga.
Garland of Breath!
Each of Traditional Hatha Yoga's asanas is practiced with many variations - based on individual ability - and each variation is threaded to the next
by a succession of specific transitional movements,
synchronized with the breath.
The mind will closely follow the deep, slow and deliberate Yogic breath, assuring the existence of true Yoga; which is the threading of mind and body - the ‘cart’ and the ‘horse’ - with the breath as the ‘harness’.
