Quick Yoga Tips
What You Need to Know
The time most suitable for Yoga is in the morning before breakfast when the mind iscalm and fresh and the movements can be done with ease and vitality.
 
The most important things you'll need to get started - as they say - are a big heartand a small ego.
A person must seek a place of quietude, which is well ventilated, free from dust,insects, unpleasant smell, draught, and moisture. There should be no distractionwhatsoever.
You must empty your bowels and bladder, clean your nostrils and throat of allmucus, consume a glass of lukewarm water and then begin the exercises after 15 minutes.
Always remember that you should begin with the easy postures and then proceed tothe difficult ones. One must follow the graded steps of Yoga.
In the beginning, all movements should be practiced lightly and you must cease togo further if fatigue shows.
Yoga must pep up and not impart weariness and despondency.
Periods of relaxation are advisable if a particular exercise proves to be tiring.
Yoga trainers recommend a balanced diet (
sattwik 
). There should be an interval of 4hours between meals.
The ratio for the composition of meals should be:
 
grains and cereals 30% of the calorific value
dairy products 20%
vegetables and roots 25%
fruits and honey 20%
nuts remaining 5%
Regarding the quantity of food, it should be moderate (
mitahara
), only that whichsatisfies one's appetite.
One should avoid overeating, fasting or eating once a day. Stale or non-nutritiousfood, you know, is harmful.
The clothing should be loose and as scanty as possible, because maximum amount of the skin should be exposed to air.
Form-fitting cotton/Lycra pants and shirts are the best.
