Just like other forms of exercise, yoga should always begin with a solid warm-up to prevent injury. You’ll generate internal heat, warm up the spine and to start link breath with movement. Your body will be ready to hold the yoga poses that follow.
Perform this warm-up before all sequences for a safe enjoyable practice.
Begin your warm-up with Yogic Breathing. Carry this breath throughout your entire practice and release it during your final rest in Corpse.
Perform each sided pose for both sides for the prescribed number of breaths before moving on to the next asana. Move slowly and mindfully throughout the entire practice. And know that yoga should never hurt. If you experience pain, you may be practicing incorrectly or practicing a posture that isn’t suited to your body. Gently ease out of the pose and take a short rest before continuing.
