Though it traces its origins far into the past, Hatha Yoga is practiced extensively in the Western world. This is due to its immense practical benefits to the function of the glands, nerves, and internal organs. Hatha is the most practical of all the various yoga styles, because it promotes vast improvements in overall health, and emphasizes the tapping of the human organism's latent energy for the purpose of mental, physical, and spiritual self-betterment. Hatha Yoga is known for its readily visible integrating and calming influence, even on beginning practitioners.
