Hatha means 'to do something', where you need a lot of self-control and discipline. Hatha Yoga has six techniques, also known as shat karma. In the West, people wrongly believe that Hatha Yoga consists of practicing asanas, but those are part of Raja Yoga. Pranayama breathingtechniques are also part of Raja Yoga, except for one specific type of pranayama, which is one of the six Hatha Yoga techniques.
Chakras are those energy centers through which the Cosmic energy flows into the human body. The practice of “Yoga in Daily Life” can awaken these centers, which are manifest in each and every person. Here you will find an introduction to each chakra.
