‘Ordinary physical exercises develop the superficial muscles of the body only. Asanas are intended for the thorough exercise of the internal organs. Physical exercise draws the prana out. Asanas send the prana in and distribute it evenly throughout the body. Asanas are more than physical exercise. They bestow mental poise, help to control the emotions and confer spiritual benefits’

Swami Sivananda Saraswati
