From my teacher Tony Sanchez.
Before the mind can be purified the body must go through a process of absolute purification. The original goal in Hatha yoga was to clear the body of the different impurities that afflicts it. The Nadis should be clear pathways for energy to circulate unobstructed. Ideally this energy must move freely like wave frequencies throughout these channels within the body including the brain. Hatha yoga has been considered preliminary practice for Tantra, Raja, Kundalini and Kriya yoga. The main objective of Hatha Yoga is to create perfect balance between all the interacting activities and processes of the body, mind and energy. We also know Hatha Yoga has wonderful physical and mental health related benefits. In the present moment, I feel, is where we can be most effective to help the world community. Lets consider the poor state of health the world is in at this crucial moment and do something about it.
This journal honors my ongoing experience with the practice, study and teaching of yoga.
