Angamardana is a system of dynamic asanas that invigorate the body on all levels. Sadhguru looks at how Angamardana builds resilience and strengthens the fundamental fabric of the body. Sadhguru says - "If strength and resilience is what you are looking for, you need to strengthen the fundamental fabric of the body. This is what Angamardana does."
There are certain asanas which are preparatory in nature, called sadhana pada. Some are tools for transformation, called kaivalya pada. The first 21 asanas are geared towards preparing the system to take enhanced levels of energies. Sadhguru says - "A lot of the eighty-four asanas are aimed towards enhancing your energies. Before you boost your energy in a big way, a certain amount of preparation, expansion, and transparence needs to happen to ensure the body and the mind will be able to take it."
Sadhguru says, "Bandhas are employed to gain control of your energy system". An important aspect of yoga is to gain control over the energy body and the mental body. Only when the physical body, mental body and energy body are properly aligned, your actions will be smooth, easy and effortless. Once you are able to use your energy body, the way you use your physical body, then there is no limit in terms of experience and exploration.
The yogic system has identified 84 postures through which the body and mind can be transformed. The body is a manifestation of various levels of compulsions. Yogasanas mean - that you are taking charge of your life. To achieve this, needs a certain level of commitment. Sadhguru says - "The 84 yogasanas represent 84 alignments, because existence as we know it now is seen as the 84th creation". Sadhguru also tells us about the spiritual dimension of practicing yogasanas.
Yoga means union. Today modern science has proved that the whole existence is one energy. If you break the illusion of separateness, and experience life as one whole - that is yoga. Hatha Yoga uses the body postures to move energy in a certain way, in specific directions, to lead one to experience this wholeness. In Hatha, "ha" means sun, and "ta" means moon, so Hatha yoga is to bring a balance between the sun and moon (or Ida and Pingala, the left and the right) within the system.
Suryakriya is a powerful process of activating the sun within oneself. Sadhguru says - "If you are in tune with the cycles of the sun, then physical health, wellbeing, vitality, energy, these things you don’t have to bother about – they are just there with you."
