In Sankrit devanagrari :
« ट्री स्तनम् अवलोकय्é आसनम् प्राņआयाम द्रिस्थिहि »
In occidental characters :
« Trī stanam avalokayé āsanam prāņāyāma dristhihi »
That we can translate as:
- The breathing (Ujjãyi Prãnãyãma – the victorious breath)
- The control of the pelvic floor and the abdominal ball (Mūla bandha),
- The focused gaze (drishti) in the postures (āsana).
When the three components (Tristana) are in harmony, synchronised with the movement, the sequence of Yoga postures and its rhythm, the yogi has reached the tristana. Once the tristana is reached, the yogi (le sādhaka) enters into the seventh part of the Aṣṭāṅgayoga, the meditation (dhyāna).
