What is Classical Hatha Yoga?
When we talk about Yoga anywhere in the world people have different definitions for Yoga as per their own understanding about the Yoga or as per the knowledge they have received from their teachers. Many of them seems very nice as per the meaning of the it but as per classical scripture Yoga means union. Word Yog has come from the Sanskrit route world “Yuj” which stands for unite. So, in brief we can say that the primary meaning of the Yoga is UNION. Now the question rises that union with what? So many people explain that to unite yourself with the God is Yoga or in other worlds union between the lower and supreme power is Yoga. Some of them say that unite with the happiness is Yoga. When we get these definitions we accept it just by words but from inside we never adopt it because none of us has ever seen the God so how can we unite ourselves with the unseen power.
