At the outset the main precondition to peace of mind is correct posture. Yoga poses are done to attain steady pose, good health and overall physical lightness. All Yoga poses are designed to – directly or indirectly – calm and silence the mind. Nine out of ten of the Yoga poses are intended to build up different parts of one’s body. Another intention is to develop the strength necessary for the more advanced physical disciplines.
