There are hundreds of yoga postures, they all help to develop strength and flexibility of body. The postures are classified into different types and each type of Yoga pose may have some specific benefits to offer. Beginners need not worry about their ability to perform the Yoga postures, as postures range from mild to intense, from basic to advanced, postures can be modified for individual persons.

From the Yoga teacher training courses, we learn that alignment of the core frame structure ,the vertebral column and the pelvis is foremost important, misalignment and stiffness of the vertebral column will affect the transmission of nerve energies and in turn affect the functions of other systems of the body, and causing development of maladies, misaligned core frame structure will affect the posture, such as one side of hip is higher than the other, or one side of shoulder is higher than the other, round shoulders.

When a ligament is tight, the joints stiffen and go out of alignment, and this will also affect range of mobility of the body, hinder circulation, these are signs of aging, and they may cause backache, and pains in other parts of the body. Many stretching Yoga asanas are effective for the alignment of the core frame structure, and limbering of the ligaments, and thus bringing back their flexibility.

Standing asanas such as Tree Posture, Warrior postures; arms and legs stretching on all fours or prone poses, forwarding bending and backward bending poses are helpful for maintaining a healthy core frame structure or improving the problems. Keeping alignment and flexibility of the core frame structure will prevent scoliosis, sciatica, kyphosis, lordosis, and tone-up the nervous system.
