Asana

August 03, 2018

In yoga, an asana means posture. Patanjali defines asana as “sthira sukham asanam”- asana is a posture which is stable and comfortable. As regards methodology of doing asanas, Patanjali says ‘prayatna shaitilya anata samapattibhyam” – ‘in the performance of asanas, efforts have to progressively reduce and the mind should be attained to the concept of infinity’. That’s means the asana performance should be graceful and mind should be concentrated. As regards the effects of asanas Patanjali says, “tataha dvandva anabhighata”- from that (asana) there is no assailmet from conflicts”. That means the effects of asanas according to Patanjali is mental in nature, i.e. freedom from conflicts.

Asanas are also performed as physical exercise where they are sometimes referred to as "yoga postures" or "yoga positions". Some asanas are performed just for health purposes. Asanas do promote good health, although in different ways compared to physical exercises, "placing the physical body in positions that cultivate also awareness, relaxation and concentration".
