HATHA YOGA AND PARAMPARA
Many people do not have a flexible body and even though
they have begun to practise yoga, they do not practise

practise very carefully, do not force yourself and keep
in mind that your body needs time to become flexible

Do not be
discouraged by the fact that you move stiffly even
though you get some exercise and sport, you should be
aware that yoga works on your muscles and on the whole
body in a very deep manner, deepest than a walk or a
swim or any other physical exercise.
do not worry, you will get your agility very soon. Some
Hatha yoga exercises and a few sessions of meditation

surely know that the word yoga means “ to yoke”, “ to
rule”, “to bind” therefore HATHA means balance and join

alive science when both guru and disciple behave with
love and drop any attachment.
