November - Warrior III Pose



vira - bravery, courage   bhadra - blessed, auspicious   asana - posture, pose


Executing the techniques correctly is only the start of Yoga. Gradually the mind must also become involved and it is necessary to develop concentration and willpower. Concentration involves focusing the mind on the postures,paying attention to detail, and maintaining balance. Willpower overcomes flagging concentration and strength, and recharges the postures with energy. In this way, mind and body work together.
— B.K.S. Iyengar " Yoga,The Iyengar Way."
