“Sthira Sukham Aasanam“
Pathanjali Yoga Sutra 11.48; The posture is to be firm and delightful.
Asana is the process of posing and reposing through which balancing its involutionary movement the mind reaches the state of tranquillity. In yogic scriptures it is said that there were originally 8,400,000 asanas, which represent that 8,400,000 incarnations every individual must pass through before attaining liberation from the cycle of birth and death. These asana represented progressive evolution from the simplest form of life to the most complex; that of fully realised human being.
Physical and mental therapy is one of yoga’s most important achievements. What makes it so powerful and effective is the fact that it works on the holistic principles of harmony and unification. Yoga has succeeded as an alternative form of therapy in diseases such as asthma, diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, digestive disorders and other ailments of a chronic and constitutional nature where modern science has not. According to medical scientists, yoga therapy is successful because of the balance created in the nervous and endocrine system which directly influences all other system and organs of the body. In this respect yoga is far from simply being physical exercise, rate it is an aid to establishing a new way of life which embraces both inner and outer realities.
