    2. Asana, breath and bandha… a seamless design.

    3. Asana, pranayama, meditation, Life.. a seamless design.

    4. Asana is hatha yoga and Hatha yoga is tantra, the non-dual practice. What does this statement mean? “Ha tha” equals “Strength receiving” which has profound implication to our Life, health and sex. How do we make sure our asana is actually hatha yoga?
