All attention & direction pointed at bodily postures or asãna’s, is in fact an obstacle in the spiritual part & goal of yoga. Simply because it distracts from the main purpose of yoga, from where yoga stands 4, from where it got its name yoga in the first place, which is control & focus of our thinking, as 2 be able 2 stop random-thinking, which then enables one 2 become one with everything, even with the One. Merely some bodily movements & postures won’t make that happen !
