"Dobro zdravlje se ne može kupiti ni trampiti. Ne može se ni ukrasti ili na silu steći. Zdravlje je negovanje spoljašnje i unutarnje čistote, vođenje računa o ishrani, ispravno vežbanje, fizička i mentalna pribranost i umeće odmaranja. Kao što se zlato pretapa da bi se pročistilo, tako se telo i um moraju pročistiti pažljivim praktikovanjem āsana i prānāyāme. " Geeta S. Iyengar, "Yoga, a Gem for Women"

"When I am in an asana, I go beyond the chronological and psychological boundary of time." ~Guruji BKS Iyengar

Guruji emphasises the aspect of maintaining an asana to build it up, develop and surface the effects and reap its benefits.

As the endurance, power and confidence grows the timing should be increased. Timing is important from the point of view of creating and developing a circulation in the body which is peculiar to the asana.

Timing is not a mere calculation of seconds and minutes one remains in an asana. It is a 'time requisition' made by an asana for its evolution when one matures in sadhana.

When each cell is sensitive to being in the present, it is timing.
