"I'm just dropping you a line to say how marvelous your service is, and to let you know how much it has affected my life. Believe it or not my doctor recommended yoga to help with some back pain and stress issues I have been having over the last year. Unfortunately, my work schedule - which is causing all the stress! - does not fit with my local yoga class schedule and I thought I would not be able to give yoga a try. Then, about two months ago, I found your site and I have been practicing three times a week. What a difference it has made! My wife thinks it may have saved our marriage ;) Thanks again and keep up the great work!" - Bill Cory, Pacheco, CA
In Sanskrit, Asana means "pose" or "posture." You will find many of the following poses listed with their Sanskrit name, meaning and pronunciation. When performing any pose, listen to your inner wisdom to explore each and every step. We are all different, so throughout each pose if something doesn't feel right or causes pain, modify the pose to your comfort level or completely release it.
Hold the pose for as long as you feel comfortable. There is never a timetable to follow just remember to use the breath and your internal feeling as your guide.
Our Asanas are organized into six catagories: Standing, Seated, Twists, Inversions, Reclining, Back Bends and Forward bends. You may also search by keyword or phrases using the search box in the header of this page.
