Make sure you have enough floor space so you can move
without bumping into anything.
Practice with an empty stomach.
(2-3 hours after eating, 1/2hr after liquids)
Make sure you're not wearing restrictive clothing.
Bare feet are essential!
Workout on a clean mat or other surface
that's not too hard, too soft, or slippery.
Be GENTLE with yourself!
Move slowly, consciously, and respect your boundaries.
Yoga is about careful expansion of your limits,
not running roughshod over them!
Breathe slowly and deeply. Moving with your breath.
Allow your body to let go in it's own time.
If you try to force it, you aren't doing yoga!
The aim, and track record, of yoga is to be the safest,
most efficient, way to maximal health.
The secret it reveals is that you can accomplish more
by doing less....
