Yoga intervention : Asana Asanas are a series of meditative postures that are conducted with ease and in stillness. The yoga sutra recognises several types of asanas that can be categorised under Pawanmuktasana, Standing Asana, Forward Bending Asana, Backward Bending Asana, Balancing Asana etc. Asanas have many uses and are practiced according to the needs of the aspirant, whether therapeutic,or otherwise. These can be likened to the base of yoga, although they are not really. Every yogic treatment, practice or Sadhana will include Asanas.
