Hatha Yoga Directory

Welcome to the Yoga Journal Hatha Yoga Directory page. In this section you will find yoga studios, retreat centers, and teachers who specialize or incorporate Hatha Yoga into their practice and philosophy.

Hatha Yoga, or Hatha Vidya, was established by Yogi Swatmarama. Not only was Swatmarama an intellectual of 15th century yoga, but also put together the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. In this work, Swatmarama discusses Hatha Yoga as a starting point for physical purification of the body, which ultimately leads to higher meditation. Most people in the west associate yoga with hatha and hatha yoga can provide mental and physical health benefits to those who practice it.
