This workout is a process of self-realization. It’s designed to help you feel empowered and build your self-discipline. Follow these guidelines to improve your yoga experience.
- Never force a pose if you feel a painful strain. Only go where it feels comfortable.
- If your knees are uncomfortable, use a pillow, rolled towel or blanket as a cushion behind the knee joint (the popliteal area, if you know where that is).
- Resist locking your elbows.
- Stand against the wall if a pose makes it difficult to balance. Balance may differ from day to day. Imbalance during poses may reflect imbalances in other aspects of your life.
