Meaning of Asana

Do you know that the meaning of asana is to take your breath beyond death. The “sa” in asana means breath and “na” means death. Thererfore asanas are difficult by design. Just melt into the difficult pose, sit with it as long as you are able to, focussing on your breath to get the greatest benefits.
