If you were a carpenter, you might have a saw, a wrench, a hammer, a screw driver, a drill.

A saw can’t do what a hammer does, and a screw driver can’t do what a wrench does.

As a carpenter, you learn each tool and you even have variations of each of the tools.

You may have a flat-nosed screwdriver or ratchet screwdriver.

You could have a light-weight ladies hammer or a heavy duty metal hammer.

Each tool performs a different function and gets used in a specific way.

So too it is with the yoga poses.

As we practice yoga, we learn what each one does in our own body.
