Description: All levels are welcome. Please bring your own mat. Hatha yoga is a branch of yoga that emphasizes physical exercises to master the body along with mind exercises to withdraw it from external objects. The word haṭha literally means "force" in Sanskrit. Prāṇāyāma - this word is composed from two Sanskrit words: prana meaning "life force" (noted particularly as the breath), and either ayama (to restrain or control the prana, implying a set of breathing techniques where the breath is intentionally altered in order to produce specific results), or the negative form ayāma, meaning to extend or draw out (as in extension of the life force).
