Yoga Sutra II.35

ahimsa pratisthayam tat sannidhau vaira tyagaha

In the presence of one who is established in nonviolence enmity is abandoned.

Hariharananda says violent thoughts have to be rooted out through dharana, fixing mind, which perfects yamas and niyamas. this shows that the later limbs deepen the earlier limbs, perfecting the yamas and making asana faultless.
