Three Tips For An Effective Yoga Practice
1. Patience – Make peace with perfection. Yoga is an ongoing practice so remember that you have a lifetime to get it right. There is no such thing as the ‘perfect’ pose. With each practice, you’re exactly where you should be, and it is easy to find the peace in that.
2. Breathe - Breathing is very powerful tool in focusing and dealing with challenges. Any moment your mind starts to wander, focus on the breath. Any time you start to struggle with a challenging pose, USE UJJAYI BREATH TO SUSTAIN THE POSE.
3. Energetic Alignment – To gain maximum physical benefits of yoga - strength, flexibility and muscle tone - always initiate movement from the core. When in a pose, engage all muscles by hugging muscles into the midline, feeling lengthening of the limbs and observe energy moving along the spine and spiraling up and out throughout the body.
