Perhaps you are familiar with the yoga vocabulary, perhaps no.  There is always room to improve :)

This  page is designed with the intention that everyone would be clear about what to expect from the weekend - and hopefully it will be also useful for the rest of your practice. Some of this words are Sanskrit words, the original language of yoga and they are regularly used in  yoga studios and in the yoga world.

(Please, keep in mind this is a very simple basic explanation of the concepts - some of these touch on wide fields of philosophy, practice and study!! if you want more details, I have created links with articles I quite like and recommend to read)

Hatha is a Sanskrit word that can be broken down into two smaller words: ha, meaning “sun,” and tha, meaning “moon.”  The idea is yoga helps to bring balance to our yin and yang energies.
