      "In spite of the immense popularity of postural yoga worldwide, there is little or no evidence that asana (excepting certain seated postures of meditation) has ever been the primary aspect of any Indian yoga practice traditionÂ… The primacy of asana performance in transnational yoga today is a new phenomenon that has no parallel in premodern times."
