How important are asanas to my practices, and what can they add?

In the western world, many people equate Yoga with postures, also known as "Asanas." While asanas can do a lot of good, they are only one part of yoga (one limb out of eight). In AYP, easy meditation is considered a more accessible and effective place for the beginner to start.

In AYP we use asanas as a limbering, a stretching of the nervous system to warm up for pranayama and deep meditation.

For more details on this read :

Samyama and Yoga Postures (Asanas)

At the forum:
Asanas - Postures and Physical Culture
Please recommend some asanas

These AYP books cover asanas and have an illustrated "Asana Starter Kit" with fourteen asana postures:
Asanas, Mudras & Bandhas - Awakening Ecstatic Kundalini
Advanced Yoga Practices - Easy Lessons for Ecstatic Living
