The entire subject of yoga in relation to health is about various postures. For every disease, it can be wildly claimed that there is a posture prescribed. Ask any yoga enthusiast/teacher and he will not only vouchsafe for it, he will promise cure and give you proofs of cures!

And many a times, he is not wrong and his stories are believable.

Many postures in yoga are tricky and difficult at least in the initial practicing stage. When it is done effortlessly, that means you are perfect in that posture. And over a period of time, it is possible. The result of practice of any yoga posture on the first day is certainly joint pain. Keep up the practice and be regular. Good results are assured.

Slowly and steadily your body will also increase its capacity of resistance. Mentally you will become more stronger. Don't be in a hurry- after all, it is your body and your precious bones are at stake.

It is well known that yoga postures not only relate to body fitness, they give path to spirituality as well. It tones up muscles and many internal glands.

Tree Pose, for example, strengthens thighs, calves, ankles and spine; stretches the groins and inner thighs, chest and shoulders; improves sense of balance; relieves sciatica and reduces flat feet.
