FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How is yoga any different from other kinds of fitness exercises and stretches?
Going back to Patanjali’s eight limbs, the physical postures is only one limb out of the eight. Yoga ties so many other aspects of your body, mainly the connection of your mind, body and breath. During your practice, the combination of your mind, body and breath increases your ability to be present in the moment and study every aspect of your body (both internally and externally).
I’m not flexible, can I still practice Yoga?
Yes, you can! That’s the beauty about Yoga, I believe it’s a form of exercise that is for everyone. Yoga isn’t just about flexibility, more than that it helps you build tremendous core strength, heals internal organs and mental stability. Flexibility will come in time and it’s not an aspect that should make or break your decision to practice.
When is the right time to practice?
I prefer practicing in the morning because I feel yoga leaves me energized for the rest of the day. There’s no perfect time to practice yoga. I recommend to avoid practicing right after you’ve eaten.
Can I practice after food?
I usually avoid practicing right after I eat. Wait approximately 1.5 hours after you’ve eaten to practice but this depends from person to person.
What do I do if I have any injuries?
It depends on how severe your injury is. I recommend that you rest and avoid practising during this period. Depending on the severity of your injury, it would be advisable to contact your doctor. Yoga is not about pushing your body, if you feel you aren’t there yet, wait till your body heals before you start practicing again.
Does theYogic cover prenatal yoga?
No, this guide is targeted towards individuals looking to start their yoga journey or even yogis who just need to get back to basics. If you want to start Yoga and are pregnant, do consult your doctor first to keep you and your baby safe.
