Leslie Kaminoff, the ever brutally honest anatomy/breath teacher, gives quite an exposition here as to why yoga is not asana.
Interestingly, most people think the words are interchangeable.
Furthermore, the very concept that yoga can hurt you- as proclaimed by William J. Broad, the author of “The Science of Yoga“- is completely false, according to Kaminoff.
What do you think?
Are the two interchangeable, or are we losing site of the original concepts of yoga?
