Yogasana – Not Just An Exercise

Yogansanas are a way of aligning the inner system and adjusting it to the celestial geometry, becoming in sync with the existence. The word asana literally means a posture. When we say a posture, every posture the
body can take is an asana. Now this is an asana, this is an asana, this is an asana,
this is an asana, this is an asana, this is an asana. So how many possible? Innumerable possible. Innumerable postures that this body can take, of the
innumerable postures that this body can take, we identified eighty-four asanas as
yogaasanas. These 84 postures are possibilities where your body will not sit as a hurdle in front of you but act as a channel for your ultimate
possibility. What is the biggest barrier for the human beings to do whatever they’re doing? It is their body and their mind. What should have been a stepping
stone, has turned into an obstacle simply because we have not explored it considerably. Yogasana means you’re taking charge of your life. You’re transforming your body and mind into a possibility, not a barrier in your life. It is becoming a passage, it is not a block. For every emotional, psychological
and different levels of consciousness that you experience, your body naturally
tends to take a certain posture. That is, if you’re angry you’ll sit one way, you’re peaceful you sit another way, you’re in turmoil you sit one way, you’re tranquil
you sit another way. Like this, if you observe your own life, you will see for different states of consciousness that you experience, your body tends to take
certain postures. Based on this, conversely is the science of asanas. By consciously getting your body into a certain posture, you can also elevate your consciousness. The very way you think, feel, perceive and understand life can be altered simply because of the way you sit. Physical body is the easiest thing to work with. If you try to do something with your mind, it will play too many tricks. At least with the body, you know whether it’s doing it right or not doing it right, whether it’s cooperating or not cooperating. A mind, if you push it too hard, it will play all kinds of tricks with you. It will make you believe all
kinds of things and dump you the next day but body is not like that. It is a reliable factor. If you work with it sensibly, yogasanas will definitely lead to the possibility of ultimate union. Experiences and Expressions Ability to concentrate is, you know,
