‘Having Breath or Life; Sentient Creature, Man or Animal.

 

“What distinguishes yoga asana from any other system is it’s focus on attaining stillness. This begins with the strength and discipline to still the body in any asana. Holding an asana expands the consciousness and level of awareness through observation and concentration.  Asana is a way of becoming ‘seated’ in consciousness, so that the postures are executed in with the intention of uniting (breath), body and mind…”
This practice gradually deepens the effect of pratyahara, thereby preparing the yogi for the sublime practice of meditation.”   (Mas Vidal)
Vinyasa Krama is the art of intelligent sequencing of yoga postures. Connected harmoniously by the breath.
