Traditional Hatha Yoga

Hatha Yoga was originally developed to support other forms of yoga and has evolved over time to its own shape. Hatha means force or tenacity, but also the sun (Ha), which stands among other for activity. Tha, the moon stands for silence or stillness. This expresses that one side you have do have effort and discipline, on the other side Hatha seeks to achieve a balance in the body, a balance between effort and relaxation.

In the medicine and in the stress management this balance is described as a balance between the two nerve systems: The sympathetic nerve system = for the activity in the body (Fight or Flight) and the parasympathetic system = The system for regeneration.

A healthy nerve system will always be able to have a fast compensation and unhealthy stress due to the high chemical distributions in the body do not constitute a health risk, as they are cleaned out quickly by the parasympathetic nerve system

Hatha Yoga supports the harmonization of these two nerve systems. It does not only enable greater flexibility, concentration and fitness, but also supports the overall health.

The aim of Hatha Yoga is to strengthen posture, body, muscles and mind and harmonize them.

The channels (Nadis) are opened in the body, so that the energy (prana) or in Chinese (Qui) can flow freely. Prana or life energy have to be considered like thoughts, you cannot measure or picture it, but they are present in the body.

In the Hatha Yoga class slow, soft and relaxing exercises are practiced. Important here is to breathe deeply and continuously. The breath is the main source of life energy (prana). Besides, exercises for breathing and for deep relaxation will be practiced. The benefit, which comes hand in hand with the increasing practice, is that your mind and your body become more flexible, stronger and more concentrated. Therefore you can take more power in your everyday life. Due to the emotions are closely associated with the breath, you calm down easier and the emotions rise is more slowly. Additionally the ability to immerse in a meditation increases.

Soft yoga (or gentle yoga)

This is a gentle form of Hatha yoga, which is not as challenging as usual yoga forms will be practiced. It is ideal for those who are not that flexible, physically limited, or are just looking for a soft and relaxed training.

It is prefered booked by elderly people and people who no longer or still do not have sufficient flexibility or physically possibilities.

A typically gentle yoga session consists of slight modifications of standard poses of Hatha yoga. That means the yoga pose will not be done as deep or strong as usually. Moreover Soft yoga very often has an alternative pose which is less strenuous to perform.

Furthermore the intensity of practice is more soft and relaxed and the deep relaxation is more emphasized than in a usual session.

How does Business Yoga work?

Stress is caused by an over claim of the activity of your nerve system, the sympathetic nerve system. This stimulates many and very often in a long term context very dangerous hormones (e.g. cortisol) to be spilled out.

Consequences can be chronic ailments such as tension, sleeping disorders or high blood pressure.

The natural cut back of these hormones and the physical and mental regeneration will take place through the activation of the parasympathetic our passive nerve system.

Because of our western life- and work style a permanent state of stress and continuous stimulus is supported, which very often leads to a continuous activation of the active nervous system.

Thus, the compensation is reduced to the passive nerve system and health risks are the result.

Business Yoga counteracts amongst others, by the activation of the parasympathetic nerve system which supports the healthy regeneration of the body.
