About Hatha Yoga

Hatha Yoga is one of the most popular forms of yoga which has carved a niche for itself not only in India but also in the west. The word ‘Hatha’ literally means ‘force’ or ‘willful’ and signifies a system of physical techniques. The Hatha Yoga is believed to be found by Yoga Guru Matsyendranath. Matsyendranath is celebrated as a saint in both Hindu and Buddhist Hatha Yoga Schools.
