Hatha yoga / physical yoga

Raja yoga, “the royal yoga”

Hatha yoga requires withdrawing oneself from society, living as a recluse and subjugating the body. Raja yoga was developed by heads (raja-s) of monasteries who were too busy to practise hatha yoga. Its techniques (which are simple, although not necessarily easy to master) may be practised by anyone and are used to attain the benefits of yoga while leading a life of engagement with family and work.
