Structured data parsed from Wikipedia. Asanas A single asana is listed for each pose, whether or not there are variations. Thus for Sirsasana (Yoga headstand), only one pose is illustrated, although the pose can be varied by moving the legs apart sideways or front and back, by lowering one leg to the floor, by folding the legs into lotus posture, by turning the hips to one side, by placing the hands differently on the ground, and so on. Iyengar's 1966 Light on Yoga lists 15 variations on the basic headstand, including for instance the combined variation Parivrttaikapada Sirsasana in which not only are the hips revolved but the legs are apart front and back. Since then, variations of many other poses have been created. Light on Yoga The table shows the approximate date and abbreviated title of the earliest document or authority describing that asana (not only naming it), as follows: Darshana Upanishad Ahirbudhnya Saṃhitā Pātañjalayogaśāstravivaraṇa Vimānārcanākalpa Goraksha Sataka Yogaśāstra Śiva Saṃhitā Haṭha Yoga Pradīpikā Gheraṇḍa Saṃhitā Bahr al Hayāt Haṭha Ratnāvali Joga Pradīpikā Hațhābhyāsapaddhati Sritattvanidhi Light on Yoga Light on Yoga
