What is Hatha Yoga?

Hatha Yoga is a form of mindful activity for people who want to utilize the time they spend conditioning their body to do something meaningful with their mind as well. Instead of just waiting for the time to pass and the “work-out” to end. By including the Mind in our movements we discover a way to “work-in”, doing something that involves all of our human aspects, not just the physical ones. The emphasis is placed on creating a sacred space, where through uniting our complete being we can align with our intent for life.

The physical Yoga practice is like a microcosm of your life and what you learn while On the mat is applicable in the macrocosm of your day to day experiences.

Articles in this section are an exercise in understanding and integrating Yoga in ones life, bringing together human nature and in-depth Yoga principles. They reflect some of my contemplations at the time and I hope that in time they will change, evolve and offer more and more wisdom. Namaste.

Guilty for not doing Yoga?

Guilt is a useless emotion. Useless because it retards change. It keeps us in a state of unworthiness that paralyzes us into NO action. It seems easier to be angry and discourage ourselves than to face the real consequences of our actions. In most cases, there aren't any consequences, we make up a "phantom punishment" lurking out there waiting for a chance to pounce.
