A union of the mind, body, and consciousness – is what the science of Yog or Yoga is all about and asanas are only a part of it. ‘Patanjali Yogasutra,’ like a bible for yogis, has 196 verses, but only three of those are about asanas. Shocking isn’t it?
Yoga is not just really about stretching, angulating, compressing, twisting, and bending; it is a way of life. The philosophy and how to lead one’s life are mentioned very succinctly in the ‘Yogasutras’.
While asanas primarily help in improving strength, flexibility, and balance of the body, there are other tools and techniques of yogic practices that aim to bring about balance in the mind and help us align ourselves to our consciousness.
If asana practice is not always possible due to health problems or time constraints, you could try some of these forms of yoga to experience its healing powers.International Yoga Day Event
