Beginning to practice IYO yoga is like introducing your body and your mind for the first time. Sure, they have resided in close proximity your entire life, but do they really know each other? If you want to be truly fit, you must introduce your body to your mind and your mind to your body. Hatha Yoga, the IYO
yoga that concentrates on strengthening and purifying the physical body, is the perfect introduction. Practicing Hatha Yoga means finding the balance in the union of your body, mind, and spirit. Hatha Yoga is truly a holistic exercise (body + mind + spirit = holistic), because it involves the activation, control, and mastery of every part of your body. Fitness is the inevitable result—so is restful sleep, improved health, and tranquility of mind. Hatha Yoga gives voice to what the body knows: All its parts are one.
