Here are some useful tips for yoga:

  • The time most suitable for Yoga is in the morning before breakfast when the mind is calm and fresh and the movements can be done with ease and vitality
  • The most important things you’ll need to get started - as they say - are a big heart and a small ego.
  • A person must seek a place of quietude, which is well ventilated, free from dust, insects, unpleasant smell, draught, and moisture. There should be no distraction whatsoever.
  • You must empty your bowels and bladder, clean your nostrils and throat of all mucus, consume a glass of lukewarm water and then begin the exercises after 15 minutes
  • Always remember that you should begin with the easy postures and then proceed to the difficult ones. One must follow the graded steps of Yoga
  • In the beginning, all movements should be practiced lightly and you must cease to go further if fatigue shows.
  • Yoga trainers recommend a balanced diet (sattwik). There should be an interval of 4 hours between meals
  • The clothing should be loose and as scanty as possible, because maximum amount of the skin should be exposed to air.
  • Form-fitting cotton/Lycra pants and shirts are the best.
  • The breathing should be long and deep. The mouth should be closed and inhale and exhale only through the nose.
  • You can check out some other commercial Yoga accessories, like Yoga belt, foam blocks, Yoga pillows and rubber mats.

I’m not too sure about you guys, but I found these tips actually really interesting! (:

I haven’t heard most of these before, but they sound awesome and I will apply them once I can practice again :)
