Ten Principles To Guide Your Yoga Practice
Let the teacher know about any minor health issues or injuries before class. If you have a serious injury, or if you are pregnant, please check with your physician before beginning yoga.
Modify your postures if necessary; use props to support your poses.
Maintain compassion for yourself (and others) both on and off the mat.
Maintain breath awareness ... fully complete each inhale and exhale.
Wrap your shoulders, pull your shoulders away from your ears, engage your core, and lengthen your spine.
Incorporate serenity of gaze (drsti) and facial expressions ... no need to strain.
Listen to your body - always come out of a pose if there is strain in the body or rest in child's pose.
Remain present in your practice ; always come back to your breath.
Cultivate balance: in your breath, between strength and relaxation, between effort and ease.
Remain curious and allow yourself a sense of playfulness in the practice.
