Yogasanas and the body-mind connection
The mind and body are not separate entities, although there is
a tendency to think and act as though they are. The gross form
of the mind is the body and the subtle form of the body is the
mind. The practice of asana integrates and harmonizes the
two. Both the body, and the mind harbour tensions or knots.
Every mental knot has a corresponding physical, muscular
knot and vice versa.
The aim of asana is to release these knots. Asanas release
mental tensions by dealing with them on the physical level,
acting somato-psychically, through the body to the mind. For
example, emotional tensions and suppression can tighten up
and block the smooth functioning of the lungs, diaphragm
and breathing process, contributing to debilitating illnesses in
the form of respiratory disorders.
Muscular knots can occur anywhere in the body: tightness
of the neck as cervical spondylitis, the face as neuralgia, etc. A
well chosen set of asanas, combined with pranayama,
shatkarmas, meditation and yoga nidra, is most effective in
eliminating these knots, tackling them from both the mental
and physical levels. The result is the release of dormant en�ergy; the body becomes full of vitality and strength, and the
mind becomes light, creative, joyful and balanced.
Regular practice of asana maintains the physical body in an
optimum condition and promotes health even in an unhealthy
body. Through asana practice, the dormant energy potential
is released and experienced as increased confidence in all
areas of life. �
