The vast nature of the science and technology of yoga

The science and technology of yoga is so vast, it can be overwhelming.  Be willing to embrace just a portion, one pose or a few practices:  for a few weeks, months or a lifetime.  There are many asanas (poses) named after sages.  The idea is that the particular sage embraced the one asana as their primary practice.  You don't need to know it all, do most of it "right" or whatever.  Whatever you do, feel, be open, embrace the life within what you are doing, be it breath, movement, concentration, study, etc.

And... can it be mentioned too often that the most inspiring and beautiful yoga texts do not or very, very briefly mention asana?
