HalfAsana is dedicated to the totality of yoga.
So please, don’t practice your yoga, Half Asana.
After a trip to India, I’m more convinced than ever that it is useful to teach asana but we all need to be acutely aware that yoga is a lifestyle not an exercise. Asana is a part of the yoga lifestyle, don’t get me wrong, but the point of yoga, the end goal, the meaning of yoga is union. What union you ask? The union with everything that you perceive to be “other than yourself”.
If you are only doing the physical practice of yoga (asanas), then I venture to say that your yoga is just Half Asana. Discipline, study and dedication to action will allow you to live yoga. This blog is for you to learn about all aspects of yoga. Read new and old blog entries with an open mind to helping you find what yoga means to you.
And I agree… asana is part of the total yoga picture and something I understand and enjoy. The posts on asana are designed to help you engage with your physical poses so that they too are not just half asana!
Play with your practice, physical and mental, on and off your mat, and see how you feel.
