Asanas Definition

Asana is a Sanskrit term that means "posture," "seat," or "location."

The bodily positions we take during a hatha yoga practise are known as asanas.

Each posture has a Sanskrit and English name.

Almost every Sanskrit term for a position ends with "asana."

Most of the asana names are derived from the forms and motions of animals and natural elements.

As in the sun salutations, Ashtanga and Vinyasa forms move fast between postures, combining movements with breath.

To avoid injury and maximise the benefits of yoga, general principles of posture, breathing methods, and awareness should be followed.
