Yesterday's answer, today's question

Hey, nobody asked me why I did not post the answer for the query yesterday:(
Any case, to remind u of the question, how many times does Sage Patanjali refer to asana in his Yoga Sutras (it has 195 verses, and not 196 as I said earlier).

He refers to it four times. In a very general manner, referring to posture or kriya (cleansing practice) and not to any specific asana as such. So if somebody is teaching u asanas called Patanjali's asanas or Yoga, I wonder what that could mean??

Today's question: Which is the most important component of pranayama -- inhalation, retention or exhalation?

Answer tomorrow:)
