While it may not hold it’s popularity in as many continents as some of the older forms of yoga, Hatha yoga is continually growing. Especially in the United states.

Despite the fact that yoga is growing in popularity during this “green” minded decade; it hasn’t always been at the top of the fitness chain. Rather, it was thought to be practiced by Buddhists and Hindus only. Luckily for all of us, it has become a main stream method of uniting body, mind, and soul.
However during these times of lack of interest, Hatha yoga still managed to develop into the many different sub styles that we know and love today. Allowing us to call many of the different main stream styles of yoga that are practiced, by one root name “Hatha Yoga”.
