Start your practice with the Dynamic Warm-up to warm up your entire body and get into a yoga mindset.
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.
When to practice? Yogis recommend practicing in the wee hours of the morning. This is considered a very pure time of day and makes it easy to focus. However, you can really practice yoga whenever. Just make sure that you choose calming, grounding practices in the evening so that you don’t energize yourself before bed.
