Real Hatha Yoga

11 posts in this topic

Someone here has experience with "real" hatha yoga? By "real" I mean the yoga practiced by serious spiritual seekers/yogis/etc. I tried kriya yoga but it only makes my kundalini awakening symptoms (irritability, anxiety, feeling disconnected, spacey, anger etc) worse, as most spiritual practices does (including basic breath meditation).

As I am gaining more body awareness, I am noticing all my tensions and aches (energy blocks) and hatha yoga seems a nice way to deal with it. I tried some popular yoga routines on YouTube, saw some benefits but I know I can dig a lot deeper with some real hatha yoga but I don't know much about it. I would love some tips of books, YouTube channels, courses or whatever. 

Thanks!

 Hatha Yoga techniques are monastic techniques intended for people who are totally involved in them for twenty-four hours a day, not doing anything else. If Hatha Yoga is taught to a person who is not totally involved in it it is not going to help much.

What is your suggestion?

I find that even popular youtube videos can be amazing if you make sure to stay on your breath and in your body totally. That should be your prime focus. Explore the body.

@Recursoinominado Sadhguru has several different programs of Hatha yoga. That's what you're looking for.

I would love to do one of his programs, unfortunately I live in Brazil and need some online program. 

I found this guy that initially teaches hatha yoga in this course, looks like he knows what he is doing:
