What is Yoga? Asana in the Context of the Yoga’s System


What Is Yoga?


Yoga is flexibility. It is love. It is immaculate, brilliant, unhampered delight. It


Is immaculate mindfulness, wide-wakeful and clear?


~ Richard Freeman, executive of The Yoga Workshop, in Boulder, CO

For some if not most, the word summons pictures of meagerly clad creatures with extending and winding appendages: a well-worn "scene" in wellbeing clubs, withdraw focuses, and yoga spaces all through the nation. At the end of the day, it infers the act of asana ~ arrangements of physical developments and stances ~ which, things being what they are, speak to only a modest cut of the whole "pie" that is the Yoga Tradition(s) of the bigger world (universe, universe). Presently there's nothing amiss with the act of asana (I do it without anyone else's help, and discover it very brilliant!), yet it may be valuable to have the capacity to place this specific part of yoga onto its bigger "guide" ~ to have a feeling of the tradition(s) from which it emerges and to which it returns, and to comprehend asana to be only one of numerous conceivable passage focuses into this unlimited and wonderful domain. So we should investigate...


Maybe the broadest arrangement inside the universe of Yoga is along the lines of the immense profound conventions of the world, and specifically, their mysterious wings/branches: Those inside these customs who recognize as "spiritualists" are looking for yoga, or direct (unmediated) union, with the Divine. Cases of Yoga at this level include: Buddhist Yoga (e.g. the "six Yoga’s of Natrona"); Taoist Yoga (generally known as Qigong ~ the reason for the majority of the military and mending expressions with causes in China); and the Yoga’s related with the purported "Hindu" conventions of India.


The act of asana, as its best known in this nation, falls into the remainder of these classes: the Gold Bayron Bay Yoga conventions. Be that as it may, this convention itself has various perspectives. One method for taking a gander at it is through the perspective of "The Six Yoga Systems," which can be comprehended as six distinctive entryways, section focuses, entries, or vehicles through which a specialist may approach, connect with, and enter the region of Yoga.


Hatha Yoga is the class under which asana falls. One method for deciphering "Hatha" is to break it into two sections: "ha"=sun and "that"=moon. Sun and moon, in this specific situation, allude to the two inverse streams that manage all procedures in our body: the "manly" and the "female," or ~ as far as unobtrusive life systems, the pin gala and the, the two nadirs, or channels of vitality, whose union inside the focal channel of the subhuman nadir is ~ for those honing in this custom, the very meaning of Yoga. Besides being, in the route depicted over, a vehicle for supernatural union, the asana ~ on a more unremarkable level ~ are extraordinary for enhancing wellbeing and fortifying the sensory system ... also, this is comprehended to be the first and an important stride along this way.
