Yoga and Spiritual Progress

Question :
Does one progress spiritually by mere practising yogic postures ?


Several people feel that if they do Yogasana (yogic postures) and Pranayaam, they are spiritual and those who teach Yoga are self-realised saints. Learning Yogasanas and Pranayaam does not lead to spiritual progress as this only purifies our Sthul Deha (gross body) and Mano Deha (mind) to a certain extent. The real saints teach Yogasana only to those who cannot do Sadhana (spiritual practice) at physical and mental plane and for higher evolved souls they give them mantra to chant or prescribe some other mode of spiritual practice. Also its not necessary that every Yoga-teaching person will be a saint.
