"Asana as Sacred Geometry: The asanas..take the form of mandalas and yantras, as can be seen by the designs of the postures in which the body assumes a variety of angles, triangles, circles and half circles. Sacred geometry involves the universal patterns existing in the design of everything in our reality....Sacred geometrical patterns are the ethereal blueprint for the arrangement and rearrangement of matter, which implies order within a system and how that system interacts with other systems....In asana, our bodies assume geometrical forms of straight and diagonal lines, circles, squares and triangles, all signifying an aspiration of convergence from duality to a unified field of consciousness....Through his emphasis on the systematic alignment of yoga poses, Mr B.K.S. Iyengar has given the world a gift. In working with him for many years, I found that alignment within the poses is not only for the anatomical and physiological balance of the body, but also to realign the individual's bioenergetic field from the alignment of the molecular structure around the body as well as within it. In other words, in yoga asana, we balance the auric field of the body while creating bilateral integrative alignment. Through their myriad of forms, asanas create energy fields."
