Benefit of Hatha Yoga Styles for Enlightenment!

What is the Benefit of Hatha Yoga Styles for spiritual seekers? Hatha Yoga practice is a physical style focusing on postures, positions, and poses. There are many health benefits, and practice can be done at home through videos and DVDs, or in studio classes.

Hatha Yoga is what most people think of when they hear the word Yoga. This is the yoga that focuses on physical purification, strength, and bodily health.

Hatha Yoga has many offshoots to it such as Bikram Yoga, Hot Yoga, Iyengar Yoga, Power Yoga, Chair Yoga, and many more.

Benefit of Hatha Yoga

The health benefits of Hatha Yoga are many:

Increase strength, stamina, and flexibility

Reduce stress, fear, and anxiety

Improved lung capacity, and cardiovascular circulation

Weight loss

Increased sense of well being

Improved posture

Hatha Yoga in its true form is not a separate practice to be done alone, but just a part in the overall Union of Yoga. Yoga’s true purpose is to lead one to spiritual awakening, Salvation, and Enlightenment.

The other, less common branches of Yoga focus on: behaviour, mental control, love for our Creator, proper perception, mastery of the senses, cultivation of True Wisdom, and increasing spiritual intuition.

Some of these other aspects of the totality of Yoga are: Raja Yoga, Jnana Yoga, Karma Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Kriya Yoga, Laya Yoga, Mantra Yoga, and many more.

The greatest benefit of Hatha Yoga is that it prepares the body and the mind for practicing the other paths of yoga.

Hatha yoga increases one’s ability for concentration and focus, very necessary for spiritual advancement.

In today’s Information Age, the first path that all spiritual seekers should practice is Jnana Yoga, the Path of Wisdom.

This practice is the best because once one has gained True Knowledge and Wisdom, the practice of the other paths becomes much more beneficial as one knows why they are practicing.

All of the greatest spiritual masters of all time taught lessons of Truth. Now is the Time to learn those lessons. Spiritual Truth is beyond Religion.

Seek and you shall find.

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find anything that agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
