Please enjoy browsing through the following photos of a selection of Yoga Asana and Meditation postures. You may double click on any image to enlarge and activate the slide show.  For your interest the Asana have been labelled using firstly their Sanskrit name, then their English translation/description with indication of level of difficulty - easy, intermediate or advanced.  In Yoga practice, it is important to work at your own capacity with ahimsa or "non-injury" in mind - practice should be done for internal health and well-being not for the benefit of the ego.  The more challenging postures should only be attempted when the easier ones are mastered and the guidance of a skilled Yoga teacher in explaining how to move into, out of and work postures using the breath (pranayama) is vital until the student has the knowledge and experience to practise their own sadhana (individualised Yoga program) independently.  Improvement can be gradual. Patience and holding the mind in the present moment are  important qualities the discipline of Yoga fosters.  These qualities are as important as the physical benefits.

Some of the Asana presented here are  unsuitable for pregnancy and contraindicated for certain medical conditions, so it is important to seek your medical health care professional's approval before commencing any yoga program as well as seeking the guidance of a qualified Yoga Teacher for advice on how to adapt Yoga to your own needs.
