WHAT IS TRADITIONAL HATHA YOGA?
Hatha Yoga is a Yoga method practiced based on Ashtanga Yoga or Raja Yoga of Patanjali. Hatha Yoga texts such as Hatha Yoga Pradeepika, Shiva Samhita and Gheranda Samhita are the primary sources for the practice of traditional Hatha Yoga. Hatha Yoga is a method wherein the two seeming to be different energies “Ha” & “Tha” energies are balanced.
Hatha Yoga has been the most practical approach, a systematic method to transform the human system. It primarily focuses on the physical body to access – control and sublime the mind. Asanas and Kriya (Cleansing techniques of Yoga) are the major tools to begin with in Hatha Yoga practice.

Samyak Yoga Teacher Training Reviews – Yoga Alliance US
Samyak yoga is the perfect place for yoga teacher training mostly because of their complete dedication to their students. It is a rigorous program, giving you a comprehensive teaching of yoga philosophy, asana, and spiritual practice. The teachers really work hard to help you reach your own understanding of the very complex themes of yoga philosophy. But most of all, I feel that this program FULLY equips you to become a yoga teacher. They provide an enormous amount of feedback–both positive and constructive, so that you can learn how to be an effective, competent, and inspirational teacher to others. Teaching methodology is a very important part of their program. I fully 1000% percent suggest this school to anyone and everyone who has a passion for yoga and desire to share that passion with others!

The lessons I learned from this beautiful team of teachers have lasted long after my experience with them. The program was rigorous, genuine and thought-provoking. I had both physical and intellectual challenges while also learning about meditation in practice – it was a new element for me at the time, as I had previously experienced schools that may have acknowledged the importance of philosophy and meditation but didn’t emphasize it as much. I came out changed in ways that have stuck with me, for which I feel gratitude. Thank you Samyak Yoga!
Samyak Yoga offers an absolutely phenomenal training program that provides the student with in-depth knowledge of the asanas, philosophy, anatomy and daily opportunities for hands-on practice! The teachers are wise, funny, supportive, and inspiring. This training was a wonderful experience that allowed for growth as a teacher, a student and a human being in the most picturesque setting imaginable. I loved every minute of it! My deepest gratitude to Trupta, Rakesh, Arvind, and Stephanie!
