Hatha Yoga Lineage The Hatha Yoga lineage can be traced back to the ancient texts of the Hatha Yoga Pradipika and the Shiva Samhita. These texts were written in the 15th century and earlier and served as a guide for the practice of Hatha Yoga. One of the most prominent figures in the Hatha Yoga lineage is Gorakhnath, who is believed to have lived in the 9th or 10th century. Gorakhnath is said to have been a disciple of Matsyendranath, another important figure in the Hatha Yoga lineage. Later, in the 19th and 20th centuries, several Indian gurus helped to popularize Hatha Yoga in the West. One of the most famous of these gurus was Swami Sivananda Saraswati, who founded the Divine Life Society in 1936 and wrote extensively on yoga and Vedanta. Swami Sivananda's disciple, Swami Vishnudevananda Saraswati, went on to found the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centers in the 1960s, which played a significant role in spreading Hatha Yoga throughout the world. Other prominent Hatha Yoga teachers include B.K.S. Iyengar, who developed the Iyengar Yoga method, and Pattabhi Jois, who developed the Ashtanga Yoga method. Both of these methods have become very popular and influential in the modern yoga world. Today, the Hatha Yoga lineage continues to evolve and grow, with many new teachers and practitioners adding their own unique contributions to the practice. Despite its ancient roots, Hatha Yoga remains a living tradition that continues to inspire and transform people around the world.
