What yoga is that we do? Yogic thot for the day

In the classical texts, as by Gorakh, dharana must be for two hours and continuous and without break. Since dharana is one of the ang -- limbs of classical yoga -- you may appreciate why none of us are really close to practising proper yoga. Imagine the ones who cannot focus even in a pose -- what of two hours, and how far away these people from the steadiness of spirit and firmness of mind.
Dharana is equated to a sharp weapon in one's personality in which the person who practices it can sever all bonds. (Def from Ksurikopanishad)
