"When [prana] power moves, the mind [chitta] moves.

When the power stops, stops the mind.
Thus, the Yogi achieves the stillness"

Yogi Swatmarama, Hatha Yoga Pradipika

The human being is body, physical body: the most obvious aspect of existence to oneself and the world that, however, is usually still a great unknown and, therefore, a great misunderstood.

Until today has come the ancestral legacy of Yoga in relation to the body, implying this step by the time, cultures and individuals a transformation of it in ways that may differ completely from one another, enriched or impoverished dramatically its essence. In any case, in its original formulation Hatha Yoga is a system of integral development of the human being that encompasses all aspects of existence, from the most dense to the more subtle.

This course aims to retrieve and transmit most ancient teachings called Hatha Yoga, the Yoga of the inner balance, through the classical texts literature of Hatha Yoga in harmony with more recent contributions from the different schools of Yoga today and biomechanics, adapting practices to the needs of each practitioner and looking for a language common to all and everyone.

In the past, Hatha Yoga consisted only of techniques for cleaning and purification of the body external and internal calls Shatkarmas. It was later, refining and perfecting until it appeared its four pillars: Yoga postures or Asana (so famous that they have eclipsed the rest of Yoga practices for the general public), whose objective is to bring the body to a State of optimal physical and energy; the breathing exercises or Pranayamathat balance and expand the level of energy; energy keys or Bandhawhich stimulates specific areas of your body and maintain energy in and between them and, finally, gestures or Mudrapractices of variable complexity which may include, at the same time, postures, breathing techniques, energy keys, visualizations and psychic gestures that channeled energy into certain areas. Hatha Yoga is also linked from its origins to Ayurveda (one of the world oldest medical sciences), in such a way that both systems are fed each other, being Yoga tool par excellence to the Ayurveda It advocates for self-maintenance of health and balance.

The idea of the course is to offer students the necessary guidance to create a sadhana, or practice of Integral Yoga Hatha it to include all the aforementioned aspects of traditional Hatha Yoga. Also, in the case of teachers who attend the course, tools will be provided them so that they can teach their students these techniques from personal experience.
