      Ya, You 100% right, I'm really impressed that you have such great knowledge of YOGA and its also nice that you doing it from last 25 years, Ya i do asana daily for 10-20 minutes only and take sometime deep and sometime normal breath, Actually due to my busy schedule of education and JOB i'm really not getting time to read about it in detail..

      I'm hopeful you would surely guide me

      The position you do is only for meditation, so called asana for meditation, integration of the mind and body. Some people named it Lotus, but Lotus is a bit different. The correct name of this posture is Sukhasana. Performing it you have just to breathe as you usually do that.

      Oh, I see, I wrote that because you could do all these yoga positions without any pain when you are on the right stage. And there is one more thing, it is not the best way to lean about that stuff online or even reading books.

      When you make any yoga exercise your thoughts should be concentrated in one and only one point of your body and you have to breathe properly. That all you can learn only from a personal trainer who is much higher level and has a lot of experience in teaching beginners... just to be a good in yoga is not enough.

      Dear Nilum, you do not need to make so incredible difficult Yoga exercises. I practice Hatha Yoga more than 25 years and I do not do them... not necessary. Playing Yoga you just make your body, mind, soul and life much more healthier!

      Oh Thanks, yeah they are painful but people do it, It depends upon hobby of a person or passion towards a thing.. If you devote yourself to a thing, you would be successive !!!

      Yoga positions huh? Looks painful. I respect anyone who can do that, but I'm sticking to running and strength training. Yoga is good though because flexibility and balance are important too.

      You are so right Nilum ... those 'impossible' positions are only for someone who has a very flexible and athletic body. They are not for the common man and woman. The basic exercises are good enough for us, and they are not taxing at all.
