Hatha yoga is named with a compound Sanskrit word, "hatha". "Ha" means "sun", and "tha" means "moon", while "yoga" means "union". Hatha yoga is the union of the sun and the moon, which represent rationality and emotion, masculine and feminine, day and night, action and rest. Hatha yoga is the union of opposites, the achieving of a perfect balance, in which the duality disappears.
