Hatha yoga is exactly the yoga with which it is preferable to begin your formation as a spiritual person. It aims to achieve physical health and, as a consequence, to completely calm the mind. It is necessary to understand that having some painful sensations in the body, our attention will be distracted by these sensations, and we will not receive proper concentration.
Therefore, it is so important, before embarking on the development of deep meditation, to bring into balance all the systems of your body, to maximally improve it, to become physically fit. Hatha yoga allows you to do it smoothly, eliminating any stress for the body.
