Morning Yoga

Morning Yoga. I've been doing 30 minutes of yoga every morning (5:30 a.m.!) for the last 3 weeks, and I feel so much better all day!

Hatha yoga also called hatha vidya is a system of yoga introduced by Yogi Swatmarama, a sage of 15th century India, and compiler of the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. In this treatise Swatmarama introduces hatha yoga as preparatory stage of physical purification that the body practices for higher meditation. The asanas and pranayama in raja yoga were what the Hindu yogis used to physically train their body for long periods of meditation.

The Purpose of Yama and Niyama by eveyoga: With the popularity of hatha yoga these days, it’s common for students to do asanas hoping to make their bodies strong. However, hatha yoga is just one of the eight limbs of the tree, which includes yama and niyama.. #Illustration #Yoga #Yama
