Hints and Tips
Practise a little and often - it is more beneficial than a lot occasionally.
Arrive hydrated. Herbal tea or water is fine.
Practise on an empty stomach; allow three hours after a meal, one hour after a light snack, coffee or black tea just before practice may disturb the stomach and nerves.
Focus attention within your body.
Let your breath guide the movements.
If you have injuries, work with sensitivity in the postures affecting the injured part.
Wear loose clothing that does not restrict your movement, and no jewellery or perfume.
Work with caution and build up heat in the muscles, using a sustained breath.
You need to be hot to stretch.
Generating a little sweat is healthy for you.
Practise with patience and an open heart.
Leave your doubts or fears, ambition or pride to one side.
