What is Hatha Yoga
In earlier days, Hatha Yoga used to be narrowly defined as the practice of the so-called satkriyas, or purification techniques. Today, Hatha Yoga is understood to mean the whole of asanas (yoga postures), pranayamas (breathing techniques), mudras (positions or gestures that represent the psyche), bandhas (energy locks to channel it), meditation and satkriyas (cleansing techniques) .
When you learn this set of practices under the watchful eye of an experienced teacher and then practice it regularly and enthusiastically and keep practicing, you will increase your general awareness and bring more balance and harmony to your body and mind.
In yoga, greater general awareness begins with the sharpening of body awareness. Using the different techniques in Hatha Yoga, you work on this further by balancing and harmonizing the body, mind and your emotions.
In contemporary terms, the discipline of Hatha Yoga means the series of physical exercises (in its most pronounced form, the yoga postures) and more subtle practices (such as breathing exercises, muscular and energetic “locks” for channeling energy) that you practice to eventually reach the inner experience of meditation.
This inner experience and heightened awareness support the reduction of the fluctuations in the mind, the ultimate goal of yoga.
Yoga is the science of right living and as such is intended to be incorporated into daily life. It works on all aspects of a person: the physical, vital, mental, emotional, psychic and spiritual. (Asana, Pranayama, Mudra, Bandha – Swami Satyananda Saraswati)
Why Dynamic Hatha Yoga
Both teachers, Eknath Erwin Vann and Sophie Saraswati, are experienced and certified Sampoorna Yoga Teachers. This form of Hatha Yoga was developed by Shri Yogi Hari, who was himself trained by Swami Vishnudevananda, the founder of the Sivananda Yoga Center in Montreal and himself trained by Swami Sivananda, on the one hand, and by Swami Nadabrahmananda, on the other hand, a true and brilliant master of Nada Yoga (Yoga of sound/vibrations).
Sampoorna Yoga is a dynamic form of Hatha Yoga that shows similarities with Ashtanga Yoga due to its fixed and dynamic structure. In addition to her experience in Sampoorna Yoga, Sophie has a daily practice in Ashtanga Yoga. In addition, Sophie has been guiding successful Hatha Yoga retreats for several years in which the various satkriyas (purification techniques) are practiced. This experience and recognized training from different yoga branches form the basis for the Dynamic Hatha Yoga training. Eknath has been guiding various Sampoorna Yoga retreats in Belgium and Spain for over a decade. As a professional musician and experienced yogi, Eknath fills in the Nada Yoga sessions perfectly. The yoga philosophy and lifestyle is evident in the life paths of both Sophie and Eknath.
