Hatha is a sanskrit term consisting of two syllables: Ha which refers to the sun and Tha which refers to the moon. So Hatha is a word that represents union in diversity, the link between solar and lunar energies, the harmony of totality. Yoga as well is a sanskrit term that indicates union, bond, connection. The practice of hatha yoga aims at a deep knowledge of the subtle energies that govern body and mind and the strong bond between the two. By immersing yourself in the daily practice of hatha yoga it is possible to experience an intense psychophysical well-being thanks to the positions (Asana) that make the body strong and healthy and the mind attentive and lucid. However, for a correct execution of the asana it is important to follow the fundamental principles, among which: correct breathing, concentration, relaxation, minimum effort, alignment, vertebral lengthening, balance.

"The purpose and function of the asanas is not only to make us strong and healthy but also and above all to make the ego's boundaries plastic and ductile whose rigidity is determined above all by our identification with the limits of the physical body and its unconscious attitudes" ( Maurizio Morelli)
