Is a purely physical practice still Yoga?
A purely physical class is not Yoga..! Asana practice is only a preparatory stage for reaching an unlimited vast experience of higher consciousness.
In order to achieve lasting benefits, a Yoga Practitioner must be able to completely withdraw tension from the body and then the mind which can be achieved through other yogic practices.
