Asana (Skt. आसन, āsana) and a sequence of asanas (Skt. विन्यास, vinyāsa).

Pranayama (Skt. प्राणायाम, prāṇāyāma)
is regulation, control of breathing. Pranajama accumulates the resources of vital energy. Its primary purpose is the regulation of bodily functions and their compatibility with cosmic rhythms. The breathing practice harmonises and stabilises processes in the body, helps to relieve tension and avoid many illnesses, calms thoughts, provides emotional stability and assists with control of behaviour.

Shatkarmas (Skt. षट्कर्मन्, akarman) and diet.
Shatkarmas are yoga practices that cleanse the body from accumulated toxins. These practices enhance physical health and restore the balance of body functions.
 A yoga practitioner’s diet should be moderate, and the food should be light and of the right combination with account of natural conditions, the person’s age, illnesses and genetics.

It is the salutation to the Sun and the worshipping of everything He represents at the macro and micro cosmic levels.

is the salutation to the Moon. It is important to take into account the stability of the Sun and lunar phases while practicing yoga and seeking for insight into phenomena. From new moon to full moon and back, these changing phases influence the Earth, animals, plants, human body, mind and emotions.
