With Hatha Yoga you learn the most well-known and spread style of yoga in the Western culture. The term finds its origin in the Sanskrit language. `Ha´, meaning the sun, and `tha´ meaning moon. The practice unites the active (yang) and receptive qualities to gain equilibrium between body, mind and soul. Physical alignment and breath control can be seen as a prerequisite for meditation. The ultimate goal of all yoga is liberation. You will learn a broad variety of postures and breathing techniques in this teacher training as well as cleansing methods for the body.
And of course you get a good background of what it is all about with yoga. Theory and practice are in balance so are body and mind!
