Yoga is not Exercise which people think. Yoga is YUJ where mind and body becomes one and attains harmony. As it is said once the body is at peace and then you proceed towards mind. Yoga is not exercise it is way of life

Hi Karthikeyan, Now a days yoga is mostly understood as asana and not more than that. Its happening because of two major factor 1. We believe we know more about our concepts, So we will study subjects like Tai Chi, etc.. 2. Western influence about how we study yoga. Most books on yoga now a days are based on the western interpretation based on the body level. Whereas, yoga's work on body(Annamaya kosha) is just a beginning. And a long way to go. Hope I have conceived by view on this, Please feel free to catch up for some more intellectual question. LET US DISCUSS :-) read less

For common people it is always difficult to understand metaphysical concepts like dhyan, moksha as they do not have dimensions for visualization. That is the reason the concept of Yoga = asanas (yogic postures) have flourished especially in western world. In Astang Yoga, as the previous speakers have said, the first two: Yama ( social code of conduct) and Niyama ( personal code of conduct) are essential to master before learning asanas (yogic postures). The importance of Yama and Niyama can be explained by a simple metaphor. An artist cannot paint canvas which is muddy and filthy, similarly a person cannot become a true yogi unless he practices Yama and Niyama in his daily life. These are also termed as sadvritta or good conduct in Ayurveda. read less

Asana will work only when Yama and Niyama are mastered. Till people who teach Astanga Yoga do not give importance... read more

Till people who teach Astanga Yoga do not give importance to Yama and Niyama, people will continue misinterpreting not only asana but dhyana, samadhi and moksha too. read less
