YOGAMALA

Structure is the secret to an enjoyable yoga practice.  Asanas cannot be linked together any which way.  The proper sequencing of poses is crucial to the effective opening and closing of the body. Each posture has a specific effect on the body when combined with another posture. These effects can be used to heal, raise energetic states or soothe the body and mind. The proper combination of asanas is fundamental to an intelligent understanding

of yoga that goes beyond the mere repetition of postures.

 

A yoga practice is also significantly affected by the order, in which asanas are performed in any particular session.  Appropriate sequencing is chosen according to the purpose and intention of the session, and takes into account ones current physical and mental condition,

as well as the external conditions, such as the weather.

Yoga is an art and science – the sequencing of asana is the science of yoga.
