Precautions in Yoga Practice:

In today's time, yoga practice involves the practice of Asanas and Pranayama for the sake of health. Both of these activities are crucial components of Yoga.

"Asanas" activate the body's limbs, strengthen muscles, and regulate blood circulation. "Pranayama" strengthens the respiratory system and maintains balanced blood pressure.

In yoga practice, start with Asanas first. After Asanas, one should practice Pranayama. While practicing Yoga, it is essential to keep in mind some general rules and precautions.

General Rules for Yoga Practice:

• Timing :- Morning is considered the best time for yoga practice. It can be practiced at other times of the day, but yoga should be done on an empty stomach.

• Discipline :- Discipline is an important part of yoga. Waking up at the right time in the morning, performing daily rituals like bathing, and then practicing yoga regularly are all integral parts of yoga.

• Location :- Choose the right place for yoga practice. A natural setting like a park with fresh air is ideal. If practicing at home, select an open and well-ventilated space.

• Use a Mat :- Practice on a flat surface with a yoga mat or a cloth spread out. Avoid practicing without a mat or cloth.

• Physical Condition :- Assess your physical condition and practice yoga accordingly. Those with medical conditions should avoid yoga, and older individuals should be cautious.

• Proper Sequence :- Practicing in the correct sequence is beneficial. Start with asanas (postures) and follow with pranayama (breathing exercises). Practicing asanas and pranayama in the right order is beneficial.

• Do not practice asanas during illness or after surgery on any part of the body.

• Pregnant women should avoid difficult practices.

• Women should not practice difficult asanas during their menstrual periods.

• Do not hold your breath for an extended period with excessive force.

• After one practice, normalize your breath. Practice the next one after your breath returns to normal.

• Individuals with high blood pressure should perform pranayama like Bhastrika and Kapalbhati slowly. Avoid intense practices.

• Pranayama practice is beneficial in all seasons, but some practices are restricted in specific weather conditions, so avoid them. Certain practices are more beneficial in particular seasons, so be sure to practice them.
