Sthira Sukham Asanam - asana is a steady comfortable posture

“Asana is perfect firmness of body, steadiness of intelligence and benevolence of spirit.” Patanjali 2,46 Iyengar translation


Using 5 functions to perform an asana - conative, cognitive, intellectual and spiritual- brings a pure state of joy “ananda” when there is a realisation of Self (when mind is stilled).


Here I am using the first 3 in the high runners lunge.

Mind and body are changing and prana (life force) is moving and can be experienced.


We will use the first three within class aswell as the spiritual experience.


Not only does the body benefit but mind will have a reduced impact on our lives because we are purifying the behaviour patterns we attach to; which affects the body.
