The lotus flower and the higher self
As the lotus flower emerges from the murky water in persuit of sunlight, so can man, in the midst of life, reach for the higher self.
Both are surrounded by the ordinary
yet remain untouched.

Hatha Yoga
Sivananda Integral Hatha Yoga is a form of Yoga that integrates the body, breath, mind and spirit. It not only teaches techniques of physical control and relaxation through asanas (postures) and pranayama (breathing exercises) but also strengthens the body and increases flexibility by working with every muscle, nerve and gland. Yoga also works on a deeper level on the Chakras (energy centers), and all this combined creates a unique sensation of well-being and calmness.

Here are some general benefits of yoga:

  • gentle stimulation of the circulatory system

  • improves back problems and curvature of the spine

  • increases flexibility and strength

  • aids with balancing the hormones

  • detoxifies the internal organs and increases the blood supply to them

  • encourages the ‘rest and repair’ function of the parasympathetic nervous system

  • relaxation on a very deep level

  • increases the flow of prana (life force) which increases energy levels

Hatha Yoga is suitable for everybody.
