The ancient tradition of Tantra maps the entire spectrum and sacred journey of Hatha Yoga. According to these teachings there are three stages to practice: Moon, Sun, and Fire. Knowing how and when to apply these practices, ancient wisdom tells us, is key to realizing the promise of yoga and to achieve lasting happiness and success.
