3. What is the motivation for me to practice yoga?


Is that your teacher? Social Network? Your body? No objection to challenging difficult poses, but pay more attention to the position and stability of the body. If your body is not ready, do not pursue difficult and deep asana.


4. Will my practice hurt?


If you feel pain, you need to stop practising. Even if the teacher thinks you can do it. No one knows his body better than himself. If you have been hurt somewhere, be sure to tell the teacher in advance.No one knows more about your body than yourself. If you have been hurt somewhere, be sure to tell the teacher in advance.

If a asana makes you feel pain, just stop it and see what's the reason. Sometimes, when you stop, the pain disappears in a few days.


5. Did I protect my shoulders?  


In the chateranga, are the shoulders below the elbows? Do you jump back every time you do a series position?

It is recommended not to jump too much to the chateranga rather than the plank pose. If there are too many chateranga in Ashtanga, bend your knees to do it. If your shoulders are injured, avoid practice chateranga and other arm support.


6. Did I protect my hip joint?


Do you listen to the sound of your body? As part of a pose that requires an external rotation of the leg or deep into hip flexion, observe where your body can reach, and don't force it. Balance hip flexibility with adduction, abduction and hip strength exercises.


7. Did I protect my knee joint?


In the posture of standing and bending your legs, the knees should not exceed the ankles. In a standing pose that requires an external rotation of the thigh, the front leg rotates from the root of the thigh, not the foot.

In doing lotus pose, learn to open the hip, remember to warm up, do not squeeze the knee.



8. Did I protect my waist?


Do you warm up when you make a deep twist? If you are tight on the back of your waist and thighs, be careful when you bend forward. Bend your knees and don't bend over.


9. Do I pay attention to the stability of the body?

When needed, use accessories to keep your body in position to avoid injury.


10. No matter how much I practice, am I happy and satisfied?


Focus on the moment, focus on what you can do now, not what you can do before, or what to do.

Your practice will change over time. Don't stick to the pose, not that you don't have a goal, but step by step, respect your body, and enjoy the exercise.

Yoga, in addition to external asana, there are many poses, such as breathing, meditation and so on, so that yoga practice to serve their physical and mental development, not for practice.
