The Random List of Asanas

This is a list of asanas. Different names may be given depending on the school, the origin of the system within that school, or the yogi or guru who developed the system in question. A case in point would be Hanumanasana, the supported version of which is typically called “Runner’s Stretch” by Kripalu practitioners. Also, a “Flat Back Forward Bend” in the Shivananda system is referred to as “Stretching Pose” in both Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and Bikram Yoga.
