TIPS TO PRACTICE YOGA
*** The time most suitable for yoga is in the morning before breakfast when the mind is calm and fresh and the movements can be done in ease.

*** A person must seek a place of guietude, which is well ventilated, free from dust, insects, unpleasant smell, draft and moisture. There should be no distraction whatsoever.

*** You must empty your bowels and bladder, clean your nostrils and throat of all mucus, consume a glass of lukewarm water and then begin the exercise after 15 minutes.

*** Always remember that you should begin with the easy postures and then proceed to the difficult ones. One must follow the graded steps.

*** In the beginning, all movements should be practices lightly and you must cease if fatigue shows.

*** Yoga must pep up and not impart weariness and despondency.

*** Periods of relaxation are advisable if a particular exercise proves to be tiring.

*** Yoga trainers recommend a balanced diet (sattwik). There should be an interval of 4 hours between meals.

*** The ratio of meals should be: 30 percent grains and cereals: 20 percent dairy: 25 percent vegetables and roots: 20 percent fruits and honey: 5 percent nuts.

*** Regarding the quantity of food, it should be moderate (mitahara), only that which satisfies one's appetite.

*** One should avoid overeating, fasting or eating once a day.Stale or non-nutritious food is harmful.

*** The clothing should be loose and as scanty as possible, because maximum amount of the skin should be exposed to air.

*** Form fitting cotton/Lycra pants and shirts are the best.

*** The breathing should be long and deep. The mouth should be closed and inhale and exhale only through the nose.

*** Always take a mat of Kusa or any other grass or hay for sitting postures.

*** For lying postures use a wool carpet, and spread a clean sheet over it.
