“Ha” comes from the Sanskrit word for “sun,” and “tha” means moon. The goal of practicing hatha yoga is to bring together opposites in your life and create balance. During hatha yoga, you use physical postures, or asanas, to align your body and allow energy to flow freely. You also learn breathing techniques, or pranayamas, which also help regulate the flow of energy and enable you to master your mind and attain balance. Asanas during hatha yoga are intended to improve balance, flexibility and strength. Some poses also massage internal organs and enhance circulation, digestion and hormonal activity in the body. Pranayamas boost blood circulation and decrease oxygen consumption, which increases oxygen supply to your brain. Yoga may help reduce stress and blood pressure, improve concentration and sleep and treat conditions such as arthritis and asthma.” ~ Livestrong.com
Yoga stretching has been shown to stretch muscles to get you ready to exercise, protect you by helping you maintain proper breathing and all important form while exercising. This allows your muscles to release the tension that builds up during exercise, which ultimately allows your muscles to relax after working out. This final relaxation stage is vitally important because the time between workouts is when your muscles repair and strengthen themselves.
