Asana literally means a posture that brings steadiness and comfort. So, the Yoga asanas should be practiced with utmost ease and comfort.
It is like attuning our inner navigator and finding meaningful answers to questions such as: “Am I at the right place at the right moment? Where am I now and also where am I going?
There are certain things you should do when the time is ripe. Don’t wait until you are too old and weak to do anything. When the body is young, do it.

As the Yoga asanas and yogic breathing are practiced, increasing the vitality of the body, there will follow a considerable decrease in harmful acts such as smoking and drinking.
We must all learn our life lessons through painful experiences that come to us.
If you do not have faith in a practice, at least have faith in the one who gave you the practice. Then there is no room for doubt.
Wear the mantra as your armor. There’s no greater power than that.
