“Yoga pose is a steady and comfortable position.
Yoga pose is mastered by relaxation of effort, lessening the tendency for restless breathing, and promoting an identification of oneself as living within the infinite breath of life.
From that perfection of yoga posture, duality, such as reacting to praise and criticism, ceases to be a disturbance.”

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali II, 46-48 as interpreted by Mukunda Stiles
