Hatha, comes from combining the two Sanskrit terms "ha" meaning sun and "tha" meaning moon. However, when the two components of the word are placed together, "hatha" means "forceful", implying that powerful work must be done to purify the body. Hatha yoga attempts to balance mind and body via physical postures or "asanas", purification practices, controlled breathing, and the calming of the mind through relaxation and meditation. Asanas teach poise, balance and strength and are practiced to improve the body's physical health and clear the mind in preparation for meditation.
Iyengar is a form of yoga known for its use of props, such as belts and blocks, as aids in performing asanas (postures). It is firmly based on the traditional eight limbs of yoga.
