Jnana Yoga (Skt. ज्ञान योग jñāna yoga) is the yoga of knowledge. It is the method of liberation, discipline of analytical thinking that allows one to comprehend world‘s principles, order and essence. This knowledge encourages the right dharmic activity, called karma yoga, and this activity is concluded with an expression of love to divinity – bhakti yoga

Hatha Yoga (Skt.  हठ योग haṭha yoga) is the strict yoga. It is the yogic discipline, a part of raja yoga, which helps to concentrate the life force and maintain balance. It explains certain ascetic practices, which are used to lead the practitioner into the goal of raja yoga – samadhi – the highest state of consciousness.

Karma Yoga (Skt. कर्म योग karma yoga) is the yoga of liberation from karma. The yoga practitioner gives ritual sacred sense to everyday activity. Through karma yoga he finds meaning in his activity and the activity is performed as a selfless obligation. When the yogi performs activity as an obligation to Creator, without any personal motives and without expecting to receive any kinds of fruit from it, this activity protects him from getting entangled in the web of karma.
