Is rapture possible when practicing asanas?

Sometimes when practicing standing asanas I get this feeling of a kind of energy flowing through my body. My whole body tingles and feels cold, but not at all uncomfortable, its an ecstatic feeling. I've had similar feelings when practicing meditation and in meditation I think it would be called rapture. Is it common to have such experiences when practicing asanas? Does anyone else experience such things?

Namaste Paulo,

I definitely think its possible. When practicing asanas correctly you should be focusing on the breath which is what one does during meditation as well. Yoga was designed for the perpose of calming and centering the mind. Anything is possible.

Infinite Blessings
