What is Yoga?

The word Yoga comes from the ancient language Sanskrite and it means ‘integration’ or ‘unifying’. In the classic Yoga it means education in lifestyle, ethics, philosofy, spirituality and meditaton. Yoga is a science which has been developed over thousends of years and is still developing. A part of this science is known as Hatha-Yoga.

The word ‘Ha’ means literally ‘sun’ and refers to the energy of the solaris plexus which is situated in the belly. The word ‘Ha’ means ‘Moon’ and refers to the energy of the emotions who are settled in the limic part of the brain. By exercising Hatha-Yoga you improve the balance between body and thinking.

If you exercise Hatha-Yoga regularly you will notice beside physical improvements also mental improvements like a better focus and concentration, also your stability, and self confidence will increase.
