5 things to keep in mind before practicing Yoga

Yoga is not just an exercise form but is a lifestyle altogether


Yoga is a form of exercise that was originated in India. It is not just an exercise but is a practice of spiritual, physical and mental disciplines that has been originated in India. Not many are aware that it needs a preparation process before they actually start doing it. Yoga is not just about poses and breathing, but is a wise practice of changing the body and mind. Yoga needs the person doing it to be comfortable, before actually trying out the asanas. Here are a few things that you need to observe and apply, before you begin to practice yoga.

1. Buy appropriate clothes – Before you begin to do yoga, go for shopping to buy some comfortable clothes. If you are going to a class outside, then make sure that you don’t buy lose clothes as yoga needs you to bend a lot and that might bring your top rolling down and make you uncomfortable.

2 Buy a yoga mat – It is not essential to buy a yoga mat, but if you want to have a safe practice then you can invest in one. Tiles can be slippery and a yoga mat will give you a good grip and protect you from injuries.

3. Keep you cell phones away – Like mentioned earlier, you need to be calm and at peace, which means your phone should not disturb you. So keep away your smartphone till the time you are practicing.

4. Dont eating at least one hour before – Before you start practicing, make sure that you do not eat anything at least one hour before your session. If you do, you might feel uneasy and queasy.

5. Do not over do it – Have an open mind and do not push yourself too much. Do not strain the body too much if you are unable to do the pose. Pushing yourself too hard can lead to an injury.
