We all know that the thrust of the IDY observation on 21st June is on harmonious mass yoga demonstrations in which millions of people participate around the globe, at thousands of venues. When participation of people is on such a massive scale, there has to be some serious planning behind it, if the demonstration is to be in harmony. Some of the most accomplished yoga gurus of India came together to address this issue. They developed the Common Yoga Protocol (CYP) for this purpose, which is essentially a specified sequence of Yoga Asanas of 45 minutes duration.
The Asanas and practices forming part of the CYP are selected in such a way as to yield the maximum health & wellbeing rewards to a diverse group of people from different profiles of health, age etc. Experts are of the view that beginners can learn CYP in about 15 sessions of one-hour duration each.

In Sanskrit, asana is often used as a suffix in the name of a pose. Although asana is now the most popular aspect of yoga, it is considered to be only one small part of the tradition of yoga as a whole. It is the third of Patanjali’s Eight Limbs of Yoga, following the yamas and niyamas and followed by pranayama, pratyahara, dharana, dhyana, and samadhi.
Asana practice is considered important since it helps to keep the physical body healthy. Since the body is the vehicle for the soul, looking after the physical body is vital for spiritual development. Asana postures help to increase flexibility and strength, whilst stimulating physiological systems of the body, such as the circulatory, immune, digestive and nervous systems.
Regular asana practice will develop mindfulness, discipline and concentration, in turn preparing the mind for pranayama and meditation. On a subtle level, asana can help to stimulate the energetic body, opening the chakras and nadis in order to allow prana to flow freely.
