Ultimately, we practice yoga poses to be able to sit comfortably and stably in meditation. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali define asana as sthira suhka asanam, "asana is comfortable and steady" and that "Perfection in an asana is complete when the effort to perform it becomes effortless and the infinite being within is reached." - BKS Iyengar.
There are also poses which are appropriate for beginners and poses for more adept practitioners. Please browse our asana index for images, video, audio and text on the various poses. We encourage you to become an iHanuman Student or Teacher and Contribute to Our Yogi-Sourced Asana Index!
