Yoga method is universal, it is not mine or yours. That method is
perfect, it is complete. Ashtanga Yoga is yama, niyama, asana,
pranayama, pratyahara, dharana, dhyana, samadhi - these are the eight
steps which make up Ashtanga Yoga method. But first you take asana:
"āsanaṃ prāṇasaṃrodhaś pratyāhāraś ca dhāraṇām, dhyānaṃ samādhir etāni
ṣaḍaṅgāni prakirtita" (śandilya) upanisads are telling: first you start asana, asanas are your foundation.
