Recently someone posted that tennis was better than yoga. This actually sent me into a rabbit hole of why I would never make a statement like that and I realised its because yoga isn't a sport. Yoga isn't a competition that you can win, it is not played all over the world with the intent of being the best. Instead it is a philosophy, and asana (or poses) is just one small part of that larger philosophy. Yoga involves breathing or pranayama, meditation, visions and bliss.
Yoga is not better than tennis because yoga is a phoenix and tennis is an oak tree. They are completely different.
