Asana (Posture) Should be Steady and Comfortable | The Yoga Sutras | Book II 46-55

II.46 Asana (posture) should be steady and comfortable.

47 This comes from relaxation of effort and the power of the mind engrossed on the infinite.

48 In this way, one is not afflicted by the play of opposites.

49 When relaxation of asana is accomplished, then comes pranayama, or the regulation of inhalation and exhalation.


50 Pranayama restricts the external and internal movements of the breath by place, time, and number.

51 The fourth type of pranayama goes beyond the limits of external and internal.

52 Then the veil over illumination is weakened.

53 And the mind becomes fit for concentration.


54 Pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses) happens when sense objects do not come in contact with the senses, resembling the nature of the mind.

55 From this comes the highest control over the senses.
