What does Hatha yoga focus on?

Hatha Yoga: Postures & Breathing

Of the Eight Limbs of Yoga, Hatha yoga is focused on the third and fourth limbs. These are Asana (Postures) and Pranayama (Breathing). In practicing these limbs, it is said that the body is then prepared by clearing the channels of energy (Nadis). Any blockage is removed, and the remaining Limbs -- Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhi -- are better able to function.
