Asanas, or yoga poses, are developed specifically to open the channels of energy within the body. Some of the movements stretch and elongate the body. Others keep limbs close to the body, and are "smaller" movements. Each pose is a meditation. Practicing Asanas can help develop other important aspects of yoga including Prathyahara (withdrawal of the senses) and Dharana (concentration).
