NOT HARD, diamond-like yoga, not pain’s edge for gain, not core development, not fitness, not a "workout"
Rather, aruksita (supple), pliant, no pain gain, like a yielding water reed, accepting/receiving/opening, giving oneself over
Not really even flexibility, but rather, softness
Muscles and joints, yes; but as secondary focus, too simple, facile, not really near the heart of the matter
Opening the flow of the inner body
Freeing not controlling
Yoga Metta, kindness yoga
