Asanas evolved over time into the system we know as hatha yoga, as a more comprehensive system was felt to be needed not only to keep the body and energy in better condition but as a physical and vital doorway to the discovery of yoga or the unity of things.
Yoga is more concerned with 'being' and not satisfied by merely doing. All doing must enable discovery and transformation of being. Being aware of the activity of the mind is itself disentanglement from thought.
In the practice of yoga asanas, we have an opportunity to discover that it is possible to do something with full awareness and without the interference of thought. This is not to say that asanas are some kind of physical activity that do not require thinking, but to suggest that the inner intelligence is perfectly capable of acting—doing the asana intelligently.

Yoga plays a vital role as the ancient Indian healing art. Classical Yoga is a science of human psychology. It works on three-facet viz. mental, physical & social states resulting in improved health, lesser greed for possession & efficient management of human life. Ageing changes are of physical, psycho-physiological and biochemical nature. In ageing all aerobic organisms are exposed to oxidative stress and gradually the functioning abilities of almost all organs are reduced. This in fact leads to reduce one's immunity power and as a result overall health related fitness declines. In old age since body does not permit for vigorous activities, one can think of yoga a healthy lifestyle.

Through asana practice, you directly see the intelligence within, which is beyond the ego, at work. This intelligence is not burdened with your hopes, ambition and preference and you see that all of this is added on by the ego and that there is now a separation between the inner intelligence and the ego. The inner intelligence deals with what actually is here, the asana you are doing. The ego deals with what it would like, prefer or what it hopes for that is, thought.
The inner intelligence does not respond to thought as it is the ego's creation and sustained by it. The ego dwells and flourishes in its own abyss or in waves of thought. You quickly learn that by following the inner intelligence, you discover just how long you can stay in the asana and when you can extend further. There is no struggle at all. Struggle is experienced when you 'try' to do it with all your skill, even though the asana seems difficult.
The practice of asanas is not about the difficulty of the asana but about difficulty period. Difficulty is the resistance felt by the interference of the ego with the reality of what actually is or the situation right now.
