On the Siddha Yoga path, you honour the body as a temple.
Hatha Yoga supports you in recognising the body's beauty and strength, and in becoming aware of the subtle flow of energy within the body.
Through the physical asanas you attune to the connection between awareness, stillness and breath. This, combined with the physical benefits of a stronger more flexible body, prepares you to meditate more comfortably and for longer periods.
