Embracing yoga and mindfulness in your life will enhance your wellness.
Healthy meals, deep sleep; spending time with nature makes yoga more fulfilling experience.
Yoga asanas-Pranayama-Meditation- go with the flow!
Wear comfortable clothes and be ready to sweat.
*Don’t practice yoga after a heavy meal. Wait for 3 hours before you start your practice.
*During illness, sprain, injuries, etc., refrain from yoga for a few days or just practice meditation. (Personally, I practice yoga everyday even if I have injuries or sprain because it helps me to come out of these issues faster).
*Women should skip intense yoga practice during pregnancy. There are a set of pregnancy yoga poses which can be practiced during these days.
*Don’t do intense workouts at the gym after yoga.
*Don’t stress your body with yogic poses. Do what feels good.
