~Asan Point~

The asan point is the state in which a yoga practitioner shifts from focusing on the physical aspects of holding a pose into the mental clarity and stillness that the asana brings. The concept of the asan point is that asanas are primarily a mental practice and only slightly a physical practice. After the yogi has brought their awareness to the breath and holding the physical posture, the mind enters into a calming silence similar to that of a meditation practice.
