This path consists of balancing the three main yoga types just described - karma, bhakti, and jnana - while integrating the eight limbs, or stages, of yoga.

Hatha [HUH-tuh] yoga is represented as a combination of the third and fourth limbs of the royal path - that is, asana [AAH-suh-nuh] and pranayama [praah-naah-YAAH-muh] Hatha yoga is the type generally practiced in modern (and especially Western) society. The word hatha is usually translated from Sanskrit as "sun and moon," with ha signifying sun energy and tha signifying moon energy. Balancing the active ha energy and the more calming tha energy is the ultimate aim of hatha yoga practice.

Hatha is also translated as "forceful", and this translationis included in the Hatha Yoga Pradipika [praah-DEE-PEE-kuh] - a classic text used by those who study hatha yoga.
