First and foremost - yoga is not about being able to bend your body every which way but up (including looking like a pretzel), nor is it even about standing on your head! In actual fact, long before social media and gym gear became trendy, 'doing yoga' didn't involve the body at all. The heart of yoga has always been about the practice of understanding the mind and yoga poses are just one way of achieving this.

The philosophy of yoga is based on eight limbs with only one of them, asana, being about the poses. The rest - yama, niyama, pranayama, pratyahara, dharana, dhyana and samadhi are really the moral and ethical codes for one to live one's life by. These codes are intended to help people live meaningful and purposeful lives; to have compassion and not to be controlled by one's sense of self-worth (ego) and trivial thoughts that might seek to dominate one's thought processes, if permitted.
