Hatha Yoga

Since Sahguru does not allow Hatha to be taught online, would learning it somewhere else be considered worse than not learning it at all?

dark room mentioned in hatha yoga book

From the book "Hatha Yoga Pradipika" page 213:

"""""" When the image of an external object is stabilized on the retina, after a period of time, perception of the image will completely disappear and a suspension of the mental processes occurs.

In fact, if there is absolutely no visual stimulus, e.g. if you sit in a pitch black room or cover the eyes with opaque cups, after some time the mind will turn off just as in sleep.

Therefore, during the practice of trataka it is essential to maintain the inner awareness so that when the mind is suspended all that remains is the awareness.

This is not only in relation to trataka but in any practice of concentration; when the awareness is restricted to one unchanging sense stimulus, like touch or sound, the mind is ‘turned off.’

Complete absorption in a single perception induces withdrawal of contact with the external world. """"""

Anyone have any advice on yin yoga and gentle hatha yoga for folks with chronic health conditons?

I have a number of chronic issues including Fibromyalgia and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (chronic fatigue syndrome), and I struggle to find yoga on you tube thay is really appropriate for me during time when I having a low energy.

For folks like me we will be able to walk 3km no porblme one week and then not be able to get out of bed for 3 weeks. We need really gentle exercise we can do when we are in a low energy cycle so that we don't completely lose our strength.

Any leads are very welcomed

I recently read in the comment section on post here that modern hatha yoga isn’t really that ancient and not even that Indian. Like 100 years ago some savvy Indian exercise scientists combined elements of yoga with Swiss calisthenics. Is this true?

Balancing the Teachings of Pattabhi Jois, Khrishnamacharya, The Hatha Yoga Pradipika and The Yoga Sutras

This topic seems to be coming up quite a bit lately. My personal practice has brought me to view each of these teachings as progressively bigger perspectives of Yoga. To understand how Pattabhi Jois' Ashtanga applies to me as an individual, I look to his Teacher Khrishnamacharya. For a deeper understanding of Krishnamacharya's Yoga, I look to the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. When I need to see the bigger picture of Hatha Yoga, I refer to The Yoga Sutras. Ashtanga is a system for learning Hatha Yoga; Hatha Yoga a way to learn Yoga. I am a Yogi first, a Hatha Yogi second and an Ashtangi third.

A question about my hatha yoga practice

Good morning. I have taken Angamardana class a few years ago 2019 and used to practice regularly. Once covid hit I fell behind and have not practiced since then. I would love to start doing angamardana regularly again but I have forgotten alot of the details. Is there any plans to have any classes taught in person or online? If not is there any other ways I can get some help in restarting the course? Thanks and have a blessed day.

Credible resources on yogic philosophy? (not hatha yoga(exercise yoga))

Hi, I'm not sure where to begin with learning traditional yoga: bhakti yoga, jhana yoga, karma yoga, and raja yoga. Does anyone have any recommendations on books that I can learn more from?

Start your day off right! Wake up and loosen up with this complete 20 minute morning yoga routine. Stretch out all of your stiff joints and breathe deeply through the slow flow and holding Hatha poses. Helpful for stretching your morning stiff back.

Hatha Yoga - The Yogi Philosophy of Physical Well-being [PDF/Audio OC]

Hatha Yoga is that branch of the Yoga Philosophy which deals with the physical body -- its care -- its well‑being -- its health -- its strength -- and all that tends to keep it in its natural and normal state of health. It teaches a natural mode of living and voices the cry which has been taken up by many of the Western world: "Let us get back to Nature," excepting that the Yogi does not have to get back for he is already there, for he has always clung close to nature and her ways, and has not been dazzled and befooled by the mad rush toward externals which has caused the modern civilized races to forget that such a thing as nature existed...

[Yogis] know that the body is the instrument in which, and by which the Spirit manifests and works. They know that the fleshly covering is necessary for Man’s manifestation and growth in this particular stage of his development. They know that the body is the Temple of the Spirit. And they, consequently, believe that the care and development of the body is as worthy a task as is the development of some of the higher parts of Man, for with an unhealthy and imperfectly developed physical body, the mind cannot function properly, nor can the instrument be used to the best advantage by its master, the Spirit.

It is true that the Yogi goes beyond this point, and insists that the body be brought under the perfect control of the mind -- that the instrument be finely turned so as to be responsive to the touch of the hand of the master.

But the Yogi knows that the highest degree of responsiveness on the part of the body may be obtained only when it, the body, is properly cared for, nourished and developed. The highly trained body must, first of all be a strong healthy body. For these reasons the Yogi pays such great attention and care to the physical side of his nature, and, for the same reason, the Oriental system of Physical Culture forms a part of the Yogi science of Hatha Yoga.

Hatha Yoga Instructor

Might be a long shot, but is anyone taking Hatha Yoga with Danae Robinett? I'm trying to get a permission code from her but I feel like her listed email on the SFSU website is out of date (it's an @ mac dot com address) and she isn't responding, so if anyone has a current email of hers i'd appreciate it!!!

**Also i'm trying to get into a 1 or 2 unit KIN class so i have enough units, so if this course doesn't work out, does anyone have recommendations? I've also looked at John Allan Penacerrada for Low Impact Aerobics and Stephany Cyr for Personal Defense. Thanks!
