The most basic and traditional form of yoga is known as Hatha Yoga. Hatha is loosely translated as “ha” meaning “sun” and “tha” meaning “moon” and its focus is in uniting opposites in harmony and creating balance. The masculine and feminine aspects reside within us all, and they are often represented by the sun and the moon.
