|Yogāsans harmonize the body, mind, and emotions.|
The art of healthy living must incorporate all aspects of the personality—the physical, mental, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual. While the central theme of Yoga remains the highest goal of the spiritual path, physical yogic practices enshrined in it, give direct and tangible benefits to everyone regardless of their spiritual aims.
|Meditation is the ultimate of Yoga.|
For full benefit, these āsans should be performed along with meditation. Meditational exercises cleanse the mind, to bring a feeling of peace and contentment within. Proper combinations of āsans, pranayam, subtle body relaxation, and meditation, tackle these knots, both at the physical and mental levels. As a result of the release of dormant energy, the body becomes full of vitality and strength, the mind becomes light and creative, joyful and balanced.
Yogāsans have succeeded as an alternative therapy in diseases such as asthma, diabetes, blood pressure, arthritis, digestive disorders, and many ailments of a chronic and constitutional nature, where modern medical science has failed.
