5/8/20 (8:25 p.m.) Did you ever wonder what “hatha”, as in hatha yoga, means? It is Sanskrit for “to yoke” or “to bind together” and refers to the bringing together or balancing of two opposing forces. The Sanskrit word for “sun” is ha and the Sanskrit word for “moon” is tha. All that we know- the universe, our bodies, our emotions, our thoughts, our spiritual selves – is always in a state of balance or imbalance between these two forces.
