"If you consciously hold an asana, it can alter the way you think, feel, and experience life. This is what Hatha Yoga can do."- Sadhguru


"If you consciously hold an asana, it can alter the way you think, feel, and experience life. This is what Hatha Yoga can do."- Sadhguru


The word asana literally means a posture. Out of the innumerable asanas a body can assume, 84 have been identified as Yogasanas, through which one can transform the body and mind into a possibility for ultimate well-being. Yogasanas are not exercises, but rather very subtle processes to manipulate one’s energy in a particular direction. Hatha Yoga is offered as a set of 36 powerful postures, or yogasanas, to enable the system to sustain higher dimensions of energy.

In an untrained state, the human body is a constant manifestation of various levels of compulsiveness. By consciously forming the body into a certain posture, one creates a conducive passage for energy flow that can elevate one’s consciousness. Yogasanas are a way of aligning the inner system and adjusting it to the celestial geometry, thereby becoming in sync with the existence and naturally achieving a chemistry of healthfulness, joyfulness, blissfulness, and above all, balance.

Sadashiv S. Rao

I started doing Hatha Yoga at the age of 43 years. My body was rigid. A few years after doing Isha Hatha Yoga, I became flexible enough to run marathons with just a few days of practice. Body aches and tiredness are things of the past. Energy levels are at a high level throughout the day. The need for sleep has reduced from 8 to 9 hours a day to less than 7 hours. The body has not been a stumbling block for any activity, however strenuous. Body, mind, emotion and energy are in sync and there is complete balance and mental clarity with no stress!
