Asanas are yoga postures that are practised in a yoga session along with other yoga techniques (pranayama, meditation, relaxation).
Originally, asana was a position that is comfortable and steady meaning a comfortable sitting position for meditation.
Overtime, yogis found that certain specific body positions, asanas, open the energy channels and psychic centres. Practising these positions allows to develop control of the body and as a result enables to control one's mind and energy.
It's only through the practise of these poses, that one can realise their benefits on the physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing.
In this section, we will explore some of the benefits of different yoga poses.
