‘… asanas are often translated as postures. It is true that asanas are the modified part of the three basic human posture, i.e., standing, sitting or lying postures and bear most of the characteristic of posture. Yet asanas and postures differ in many respects. The term does not convey fully the meaning of asana. What are the differences? He argues that the state of the mind is not very important in the postures used in daily life. Most of the time we are not aware of the postures we perform. We develop and maintain them without noticing them while we are attentive to the various kinds of thoughts, tasks and work we do. On the contrary asana is acquired voluntarily, with full concentration on what and how we are doing it’
