Yoga has been a part of my life for so many years now. Many people may not realize that it was also my father’s favorite activity and that he used to follow a series of rules while doing the things with me. In this article I will tell you how to make yoga fun for yourself.
First of all, do not go for long stretches at the beginning or at all. The idea is to get into the flow of the yoga exercise and the last thing you want to do is to burn yourself out. Do only enough for the muscles to get used to what is being done and then gradually increase the amount that you are doing. This way, your body will adapt to the new exercises and that the stretching can become even more fun.
Mantra is very important while doing yoga exercises. Many people have the habit of repeating a certain word or sound, which might trigger an immune response in the body. So, you can easily stop yourself from repeating the words “be peaceful” in the middle of the yoga exercise by saying the mantra “Goddess”.
Another thing you can do when you do yoga is to give your yoga teacher some instructions. Some may not know how to start a yoga exercise and this is when you can show them how to start with. If you have a yoga teacher, then this will be very easy for you.
Some people tend to forget that you cannot eat after doing yoga exercises. You need to have enough rest before you can eat again. You can eat a light meal in the evening or on the weekend. If you do not like to eat, then you could eat a bit after the yoga exercise.
It is always good to go for some water when you go for yoga exercises. This will prevent dehydration. Also, you need to drink water to avoid constipation. Also, if you feel thirsty, then go and drink some water.
The most important thing to remember when you are practicing yoga is to relax and calm down. This will help you concentrate on the yoga exercise more. Remember, yoga exercises are done to remove stress from your body.
