Asana Meaning: Explaining The Third Limb Of Yoga

What is the first thing that pops into your head when you think about the word yoga?

Perhaps you imagine a group of young, (most likely) white, able-bodied women with strong, muscular flexible bodies. You may think of yoga as people breathing and performing intricate and acrobatic postures with little clothing in a dimly lit room.

Those postures, the shapes that the practitioners make with their bodies, are known as Asana, and it is not yoga as a whole, but simply one of the many layers that truly encompass what yoga is; a body, mind, spirit practice.
