Yoga Poses or Yoga Asana are postures aimed at developing a healthy body and mind. The Patanjali Yoga Sutras define Asana as – ‘Sthiram Sukham Asanam’, which means Asana is a pose that is steady and comfortable. Asana is the third step in Maharishi Patanjali’s Ashtanga yoga. Asanas or yogic poses gives strength, flexibility, balance and steadiness. Apart from the spiritual benefits, each Yoga pose also has its specific health benefits.
