Hatha Yoga as Spiritual Practice by Swami Ramananda

The goal of Yoga is to experience this innate nature and to allow that aspect of our being to guide the way to everything. At peace with ourselves, innately we are in a loving relationship to what is outside of us. It is our nature to express love. When our action is an expression of love, there is joy in that.

Hatha Yoga as a Tool for Self-discovery by Swami Ramananda

In Hatha practice, we attempt to move and think about our movements in ways outside of our patterned thinking and moving. We practice being and acting free of our conditioning by moving with complete, non-judgmental awareness and in loving response to the capacity of the body in this moment only.
