We have unique body and level to which we can bend vary. The good news is that the purpose of including yoga in your daily schedule is – not to achieve the perfect bend, but – to bring the body, breath, and mind together. Gear up with these simple tips and get on the yoga mat with a yogi’s attitude.
Before starting each week, plot in your calendar what days and times you’ll be practicing yoga. This will help you stick to the plan. Don’t forget to factor in one rest day (on a day of your choosing) per week.
2. Using goals
In life, we’re told to dream big. Reach for the stars. Go for the gold. While most people would agree that having big aspirations is admirable not to mention inspiring, you should take a more calculated approach when setting fitness goals. Define a progressive set of yoga goals that build on one another to help propel you toward that big dream or aspiration.
By eating a healthy, well-considered meal 1-2 hours before exercise, and another healthy, well-considered meal within 0-1 hours after exercise, most people can meet their workout nutrition needs without anything else. If you’re a healthy person who exercises regularly, you probably don’t need special workout nutrition strategies.
4. Incorporate yoga into your life
Can you stretch your hand to someone new? Can you remain stable and breathe through the pain in difficult situations (just as you use the breath to stabilize difficult asanas)? Reflect on the 23 hours of life, not just the one hour of yoga practice. That is why yoga is a way of life and not just an exercise.
