Things to consider before practicing Yoga

I have been practicing Yoga for years now and it has changed my life in many ways. I believe that yoga not only touches your body but also your soul. It is not just a workout that is practiced to stay fit but connects you with your spiritual self.

In this blog, I will be pointing out few of the basic things that needs to be considered by every person practising yoga:

1. No matter how busy your schedule is, make sure to incorporate Yoga into your schedule. However, Yoga should not be practised in a rush. It is a meditation practice that is supposed to calm yourself. Remember, unlike gym workout yoga concentrates on your physical as well as mental wellbeing.

2. Practice whenever you get time, even 20 minutes a day can make a difference. When you start practising Yoga seriously everything else will fall into the right place. Your mind will be clearer and your brain will be more efficient.

3. Always meditate in a place that makes you comfortable. I usually meditate in my living room facing the balcony. It gives me a good view and maintains a fresh ambience throughout my yoga session. I recommend that you practice in a place that is quiet and calm, be it your terrace, garden, bedroom. The place you choose for yoga should be away from all distractions.

4. I would recommend that you analyse how you feel before and after your session, you will definitely notice the change within a few days. Check your heart rate, blood pressure, stress level and breathing. If we concentrate on how you feel before yoga then we will be able to choose the right yoga practise for you. This will also help you understand the improvement that is happening in your life due to yoga. This will greatly motivate you to continue yoga.

These are some the factors that need to be considered while you practise yoga. Hope you find this post useful. Feel free to share your Yoga experience, I would be more than happy to read your comments.
