Yoga postures or yoga asanas
“Asanas make one firm, free from maladies and light of limb.” Hatha Yoga Pradipika
Asanas are suitable for everyone
There is no age limit for those who wish to practise yoga, or asanas, as the yoga postures are called. They can be practised at any age, no matter whether you are 5 or 95. Asanas are performed slowly with concentration while taking deep, conscious breaths. The yoga postures strengthen the body and have positive effects on the mind and soul.
Beneficial for the body, mind and soul
The yoga postures improve the flexibility of the spine and the joints, and strengthen the body’s muscles, glands and internal organs. The body is invigorated and toned, and regains its ideal form. Regular asana practice releases hitherto unknown sources of energy and leads to a whole new feeling of physical well-being.
The gentle movements also have a deep spiritual benefit: they help us to overcome fear, develop trust and find inner peace.
