YOGA -‘How We Do’ Is More Important Than ‘What We Do’

Yoga is all about being constantly mindful of how you are doing it and feeling the positive effects on the body. The awareness that comes with such practices has to be with us round the clock. The following points should be kept in mind.

Postures with Alignment


There should be optimal aligning of bones, supported with strong balanced muscles to prevent wear and tear of joints. Each posture prescribed is described with detailed alignments. Be very careful to follow the alignments.

Strength over Flexibility

Flexibility that cannot be supported by strength should not be aimed for. Even if you are extremely flexible, you may not have the muscle strength to get into certain postures and may end up injuring yourself.

Breathe

When we push too hard while exercising, we tend to hold our breathing. This brings in rigidity rather than stability, and stiffness rather than suppleness. There is also an increased risk of injury.

Less Is More

Never overdo or go beyond the range of safe movements. Progress slowly and steadily; motivate yourself as you move from success to success. Be generous to yourself by moving within your personal pain-free range.
