Yogasana
  Useful Hints

Place

:
Have an open place, where fresh air is easily available like a garden terrace or verandah. That place should be free from bad odour, mosquitoes or insects or any kind of disturbing factors.
Time
:
Early morning 4-8 A.M. is the best time, when the mind and the atmosphere are cool. Begin with a minimum time of thirty minutes daily and increase the duration up to a maximum of one hour.
Dress
:
Wear loose light and clean clothes, preferable cotton.
Seat
:
Use a bed-sheet, blanket or mat, etc. The seat should be full size for practicing asanas. Do not use woolen fibers as they stick to your lips or nose.
Food
:
Always practice asana on an empty stomach. Asanas are not allowed on full stomach or after a meal. Make sure at least 3-4 hours have passed after a meal and half an hour after a glass of juice or any kinds of liquid. Meals such as breakfast may be taken fifteen minutes after performing asanas.
Rest
:
It is necessary to rest for a few seconds after practice of each asana.
Avoid force
:
Do not practice any asana with undue force, and do not eat or drink immediately after practicing asana.
