've just come back from my second teacher training immersion in Mysore, India. I have been studying under the guidance of one of the best yoga teachers from the source of the yogic practices, Yogacharya Vinay Kumar, the founder of Prana Vashya Yoga in Mysore!

I remember when I first started practicing ashtanga on a daily basis I become obsessed with how long it took to reach certain pose. It happens because we practice the same sequence for days but sometimes for weeks or even for months we are stuck at one pose we can not achieve. And then we tend to turn on the stop watch and start to count down until we finally put this leg behind our head.
The Sanskrit word "asana" means a body pose or a positin that a body can take. Any pose that a body can take, a pose that has no official record or a name is also an asana. This means we all can create our own asanas, simple or difficult ones, and still it will be an effectual asana - a body pose.
