Hatha yoga is the observe of the bodily physique. Tantra Yoga is the observe of the power physique.
What’s the “power physique”? You’ll be able to consider it this manner: All matter is made up of energetic frequencies, as quantum physics now proves. It consists of our physique. Life pressure power is flowing by way of us human beings on a regular basis from the time we’re conceived till the time we die. Life pressure power is understood by completely different names in several cultures like Chi in Chinese language, Kundalini in Sanskrit, Reiki in Japanese or The Pressure as in Star Wars.

To entry power consciousness, we depend on the Chakra system of seven main power facilities within the physique. Every chakra is related to a distinct approach of feeling, feeling and pondering. For instance, the center chakra, situated in the midst of the chest between the breasts, is related to love and compassion, and the flexibility to attach with different folks. It’s seen when an individual expresses his love for one thing or somebody and locations his hand on his coronary heart. Everyone knows this expertise. If the center chakra is out of stability and constricted, we might really feel closed to ourselves or to at least one one other. Different chakras produce other results and all of them are equally necessary.

It is usually the first purpose of Hatha yoga: to permit one’s power to circulation extra simply. Alignment is the first purpose of any Hatha yoga class. The poses (aka “Asanas”) had been designed to carry an individual’s physique into optimum alignment. And never only for higher posture; each pose has an lively part behind it. For instance, Virabhadrasana I (Warrior I) is great bodily for constructing quadriceps and glutes power, but in addition energetically cultivates extra braveness and power to face life’s challenges.
Tantra and Hatha Yoga due to this fact start to nourish one another. For instance, if an individual practices lots of Tantra, they might discover that their observe of asanas improves significantly. It’s because as their power works higher, their our bodies naturally transfer in direction of optimum alignment. Conversely, if an individual is primarily a Hatha yoga practitioner, their physique will start to launch emotional blockages as they work on their alignment. For this reason not everybody feels at peace or joyful throughout a yoga class. As we start to breathe and stretch in our our bodies, outdated feelings start to come up.
