Hatha Yoga is a flexible combination of specific techniques that help develop every aspect of the individual: Physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual. It is a scientific system that integrated the various branches of yoga and brings about a harmonious development of the individual.   Regular practice of yoga helps achieve a body of optimum health and strength, senses under control, a mind well disciplined, clear and calm, an intellect as sharp as razor, a strong will, a heart full of unconditional love and compassion, an ego as pure as crystal, and a life filled with supreme peace and joy.– -Swami Satchidananda

Hatha Yoga practice starts with the physical body, preparing the ground for progressive stages of your yoga practice, such as pranayama and meditation.
Most Hatha Yoga practice traditions start with purification practices where the body is first made free of toxins so that the flow of energy (prana) is streamlined. The practice of asanas then makes the body strong and supple. The physical body is the vehicle of the soul and we must pay appropriate attention to the welfare and fitness of the body. Pranayama practices enable the Kundalini to awaken, finally leading to the state of self-realisation.
