Hatha Yoga Asanas – create balance and unites opposites
At our Yoga hotel in Austria in the natural alpine environment with our qualified Yoga teachers we teach you the meaning of Yoga practice and the skills to continue your practice at home. The word hatha means willful or forceful. Hatha yoga refers to a set of physical exercises (known as asanas or postures), and sequences of asanas, designed to align your skin, muscles, and bones. The postures are also designed to open the many channels of the body—especially the main channel, the spine—so that energy can flow freely.
Hatha is also translated as ha meaning “sun” and tha meaning “moon.” This refers to the balance of masculine aspects—active, hot, sun—and feminine aspects—receptive, cool, moon—within all of us. Hatha yoga is a path toward creating balance and uniting opposites. In our physical bodies we develop a balance of strength and flexibility. We also learn to balance our effort and surrender in each pose.
Hatha yoga is a powerful tool for self-transformation. It asks us to bring our attention to our breath, which helps us to still the fluctuations of the mind and be more present in the unfolding of each moment.
Welcome at our Austrian Yoga resort in the mountains – love, peace, tranquility and relaxation at the Yoga and Ayurveda Traumhotel Alpina in Austria.
Meet your yoga teacher at the alpine Yoga and Ayurveda resort in Tyrol
Maya grew up in Gerlos, Austria and is currently also living here. She went to India for a longer period in 2006 which is where she started with her first yoga courses. Maya recognized the amazing possibilities of yoga immediately and has used this ancient system to continuously work on mental blockages, fears, karma through her daily asanas and meditation. It has helped her to gain a much deeper understanding of life and what is truly important. She returned to India again in order to continue her yoga practice with experienced teachers and has been blessed to work in places such as Mysore, Kerala and Rishikesh. Further seminars and workshops were visited by her in Germany and Austria. She finally finished her qualifications and exams as a yoga teacher in Austria.
Maya says: „I’m truly looking forward to sharing some of my knowledge and experience as well as my daily practice with you.“
