Origins of Hatha Yoga
Hatha Yoga, (Sanskrit: “Discipline of Force”) school of Yoga that stresses mastery of the body as a way of attaining a state of spiritual perfection in which the mind is withdrawn from external objects.
The inception of Yoga begins with Shiva who is also known as the Adhi Yogi as well as the father of Yoga. He was the first yogi to teach and flourish the science of yoga. The Shiva gave the knowledge of hatha yoga to his wife, Goddess Parvati - but a fish heard the entire discourse, remaining still throughout. The fish (matsya) later became a siddha (obtained magical powers) and came to be known as Matsyendranath. Matsyendranath taught hatha yoga to his disciple Gorakshanath and to a limbless man, Chaurangi. Hatha yoga was thus passed down in disciplic succession.
Yoga is an ancient science developed in India, about 5000 years ago. The great sages(rishis), devoted their whole life in developing -
this science that enhanced the physical and mental well being of the person.
Classical Hatha Yoga is described primarily in three texts of Hinduism: Hatha Yoga Pradipika by yogi Swatmarama (15th centrury BCE), Shiva Samhita by unnkown author (~16th centrury BCE) and Gheranda Samhita by yogi Gheranda (17th century BCE). Swatmarama made a complilation of earlier hatha yoga texts. He introduces his system, which is based on asanas (physical postures) and pranayama (breathing techniques) as a preparatory stage for physical purification of the body for the purpose of higher meditation or Yoga. Hatha Yoga Pradipika includes information about shatkarma (purification), chackras (centers of energy) and nadis (energy channels), kundalini (instict), bandhas (muscular locks), kriyas (cleansing techniques), Shakti (sacred force) and mudras (symbolic gestures) among other topics.
