Bhakti (Devotional), Raja (Psychological) and Jnana (Philosophical)
and their effects on the physical and astral body.
What is Hatha Yoga? Hatha yoga means the union of the two
energy forces, pranic (breath) and mental (mind) energy. One
of these normally predominates causing imbalance. Hatha Yoga
works on balancing the two bringing them into equilibrium,
channelling them through the sushumna awakening the Kundalini.
Once Kundalini is awakened it travels through the charkas
and terminates in the ajna charka and the psychic centre is
awakened. To achieve this safely the body and mind must be
balanced and cleansed through practice based on The Five Points
of Yoga. Proper exercise (Asana), proper breathing (Pranayama),
proper relaxation (Savasana), proper diet and positive thinking
(Vedanta and Dhyana). Anthea includes music and essential
oils during practice, meditation and pranayama to create a
vibration of peace and harmony to balance the mind, body and
Anthea also teaches Pregnancy Yoga and Yoga Therapy to people
