Make sure you take a few moments to breathe and center yourself before you begin your practice. When practicing yoga, you should always listen to your body. Never push yourself into a pose that causes you to feel pain or discomfort. Instead, move slowly in and out of the poses so that you feel comfortable at all times. Consider each pose as a journey that consists of three parts: coming into the pose, holding the pose and coming out of the pose. All three parts of the pose are equally important.
