Who was the founder of hatha yoga?

Hatha Yoga may be traced back to Gorakhnath, the fabled 11th-century founder of the Kanphata Yogis, although it evolved from yogic traditions as far back as Patanjali (2nd century bce or 5th century ce), compiler of the Hindu classics the Yoga-sutras and the Mahabhasya ("Great Commentary").

Gorakhnath was a religious figure who lived in India around 1150-1250. Little is known about his life except that he was a spiritual teacher and poet. He is said to have created a profound impact on his students, many of whom went on to found major schools of yoga. Gorakhnath founded the Kanphata Yogi order, which later came to include several branches across India.

Hatha yoga is an exercise system that combines physical postures (asanas) with breathing (pranayama) and meditation (dhyana). The term "ha" means "sun" or "light" and "tha" means "heat" or "fire". Hatha yoga is considered the most accessible form of yoga for beginning practitioners because it can be done by anyone at any level of fitness. It can also be done alone, which is called sunita patanjali yoga. This type of yoga is popular among busy people who want to relax after a hard day's work.

Is Isha Yoga free?

Sadhguru, the yogi and mystic, established Isha Kriya, a simple yet powerful procedure rooted in the ancient wisdom of the yogic sciences. Isha Kriya is a free, basic, and straightforward exercise. Isha Kriya practice on a daily basis promotes health, dynamism, calm, and well-being. It is not limited to any particular religion or philosophy; rather, it has the potential to unite people from all walks of life.

Isha means 'consistent' and kriya means 'action'. Thus, Isha Kriya is a consistent action that purifies the mind and body. The term 'yoga' originates from yuj, which means "to join". Thus, yoga means "the union of the soul with the Supreme Soul (Paramatma)".

Isha Kriya brings about a deep internal cleansing that eliminates our accumulated sins and ill deeds. When we speak of sin, we usually think about something we have done that violates someone else's right or prohibition. But actually, what affects one person within is also affecting everyone else within. Sin is anything that separates us from God whether it be through our words, thoughts, actions, or even silent consent. By performing Isha Kriya every day, we are returning back to God through prayer and meditation.

In conclusion, Isha Kriya is a simple yet powerful process that unites people from all walks of life.
