There are many ways to practice yoga. Each method has its own purpose, but all have the same goal: the integration and harmony of the practitioner’s whole self. This practical guide focuses on Hatha yoga, which is the yoga of physical activity, as it is often considered the best starting point. As the title implies, balanced yoga encompasses many disciplines. Each lesson is divided into twelve weeks and centers around a principle or guiding principle that is demonstrated by related postures or exercises. You will also find breathing and relaxation techniques, diet advice, and methods to meditate and concentrate. Balanced yoga is a safe and practical guide that can be used by both men and women to provide a complete system for mental, physical and emotional health.
