YOGA ASANAS – yoga postures
Yoga asanas are postures that rejuvenate the body and promote a state of physical and mental wellbeing. The practise of asanas is accompanied by conscious breathing. Although the postures are performed by the physical body which is strengthened and revitalised through the practise, asanas also have profound positive effects on the mind.
They can be practised regardless of age.

Asanas make one firm, free from disease, and light of limb.
