Yoga Poses – Asanas

Asanas represent the physical practice of yoga – more precisely, the positions that the body takes during the performance of yoga exercises.

Yoga poses are performed to improve the flexibility, strength and balance of the body. With dedicated practice, over time, the body will experience noticeable improvements, but asanas are not meant to be just physical poses, but are used holistically, as mind-body exercises, to improve physical, mental and spiritual health.

Knowing the benefits of each type of asana
will help you perfect and deepen the skill of performing yoga exercises.
