B.K.S. Iyengar on hatha yoga:
The human body is in itself a miniature universe. Hatha yoga consists of the syllables Ha and Tha, meaning sun or moon. The sun and moon energy, it is claimed, flow through the two principal nadis, pingala and ida, which emanate from the right and left nostrils, respectively, and lead down to the origin of the spine. Pingala is the nadi of the sun, while Ida is that of the moon. Between them lies Sushumnā, the Nādī of fire. As mentioned before, Sushumna-Nādī is the main channel through which the nerves energy flows. It lies within the Meru-Danda or the spine. Pingala and Ida intersect and Sushumna in different places.
