Hatha yoga uses the postures or asanas which are used to strengthen, stretch, and tone the body as part of yogic practice. During a hatha yoga session, the practitioner will move through a number of these poses, holding them for varying amounts of time and working in a set order to ensure that muscle groups are slowly warmed up and evenly worked. An important aspect of hatha yoga is pranayama, or breathwork. Control of the breath is said to be vital to the control of the body, and it also encourages an inward focus which can help to develop one's spirituality. The practice of meditation is also deemed to be an important part of hatha yoga, although not all people engage in meditation. The practice of yoga tends to promote a calm, still state which can be conducive to meditation, and this is part of the goal of yogic practice.
