can someone please explain what hatha yoga is and any that will help my free diving and a good web site
thanks josh

Nope, but I think you should check out ashtanga yoga ( I just started a couple of months ago ). It's allot about breathing and expanding ribcage ( lungs?! ). I would recomend you to find a local place where someone can instruct you.

Have a look at www.ashtanga.com

Can't explain Hatha yoga but there is a good thread on the forums here about yoga.

Check it out.
hatha yoga

hatha yoga is the physical exercise part of yoga teaching. It is rather a new part of yoga when compared with others. It is said that the founder of hatha yoga is a man named Goroksanatha who lived in the first centuries AD. I strongly recommend the book "Hatha Yoga Pradipika" which is best in this field. The main aim in hatha yoga is to influence the brain by using our body...
see you
which form of yoga for reediving?

So far I have read about different list members using Hatha, Kriya, abd Asthana yoga. Which form works best for freediving?
I am starting a basci yoga class this week at the local YMCA. I did it a few years ago when I lived in a different city with a teacher who has since retired.
I am looking around for a more in depth teacher in my current area. I see that one yogi teaches Astnaga. I assume that is the same as Asthanaga. Another local yogi teaches Bikram yoga. Others teach Hatha.
Any suggestions on which form to go with? I figured that the YMCA would be good enough for the first to course levels and then I can really concentrate on one specific form that I want to work on.
Thanks for any input you might have !
