Yoga means unity. The unity of individual soul with Absolute spirit is yoga. The majority of us anyhow suffer physically, mentally or spiritually. Yoga helps us to keep our body like a temple, thus it becomes as pure as the soul. The body is lazy, the mind is quick and the soul emits light. Yoga practice develops the body to the level of quick mind so that body and soul become energetic and after that direct them to the light of the soul. Science of intellect is called raja yoga, science of knowledge is jnana yoga, science of duty is karma yoga, and science of will-power is hatha yoga. Hatha yoga is not just a physical training as many people think; it is a unique science of control of solar and lunar energy in a human being’s organism.
Video "Ha" means "Sun", without this star the life would not be possible on the Earth, and this is our soul in our body. "Tha" means "Moon", a planet responsible for all liquids on the Earth, and this is consciousness in our body. The Sun shines equally but the Moon is on the wane and increase every month. Our soul never fades as well, but intellect, or mind, is liable to changes of mood, animation and falling-off like phases of the moon. Doing asanas (static postures), regulating the breath you put your mind under control and operating your mind you achieve the unity of body, mind and soul. Hatha yoga is the union of body, mind and soul.
