    My husband learnt yoga from a Guru and was doing asanas from age 7 and was quite hale and hearty.But after the brain injury he was dissuaded by doctors from doing sarvangasana ans shirasaasana for valid reasons.All the exercises,meditative practices etc hold good only when the entire sysytem functions normally.Otherwise we have to restrict.

    Thanks to madam sister visit here.

    I agree when the entire body network functions are intact, the benefit of yoga & meditation practices render the person more fit. But to maintain that fitnesses acquired it seems necessary to continue with the regimen in religious manner every day at the dedicated hour.
    Regards.

    Dear @Thyagarajan sir,

    Here I am finally - been meaning to write since the day you posted but days have been getting the better of me. Personally for me, yoga is moving meditation. While practising or teaching yoga, if I falter in my pose I know my mind has wandered. Yoga is melody, harmony and symphony - as long as we can get to that point of "Sthirasukham aasanam" - afterall the ultimate goal of yoga is "Chitha shudhi nirodah" leading us to meditation. Thankfully, Patanajali doesnot specify which asana gives us that sthira sukham - it is upto the practioner, it can be a headstand or a simple padmasana. In the Ashtanga school I practise and love, our sun salutations prepare us for asana practice and perhaps of all the asanas. there may be one that gives that 'aha' moment. So in the one hour class or my own practise, I strive to get to that moment and it is in that moment I find all that melody, harmony and symphony. It is amazing though that the moment can carry me through the day with so many other moments. Over the years, I am learning it is not the complexity of the asana but for that moment that I come to that mat.
