Abdominals (39)
The abdominal area is more than a muscle 'core'. It is the seat of important digestive organs, and close to the reproductive centre. While the abdomen sits in the front of the body, the lower back is directly in line with the abdomen, at the back of the body. In the asana framework, the abdomen is a very important centre for 'breath'. For all these reasons, asanas have a nuanced way of working on the abdominal region.

Lateral (side-body) actions (24)
We often think of our bodies in terms of 'front' and 'back'.  But we are three-dimensional creatures, and we have a 'depth' in addition to height and width.  The 'sides' of the body, is a measure of our depth.  Focus on the 'sides' of the body makes all our other asanas more robust, it makes us aware of the 'volume' or 'space' within ourselves.  This sensitivity becomes crucial when we proceed towards pranayama pracitce.

Seated (35)
Just sitting on the floor unlocks a wide variety of positions for hips, ankles, and knees that are not available when we sit on a chair.  Compared to standing, sitting brings our trunk much closer to floor. This enables us to work on the lower back, pelvis, abdominal area. Several seated positions are recommended for the health of the digestive and reproductive organs.  Stability and ease in seated asanas is also a pre-requisite for the meditative limbs of yoga - for pranayama, dharana and dhyana.
