If you aren't quite ready for the commitment of a class, or if for any other reason you don't want to or aren't able to take a class, do-it-yourself yoga can be very rewarding. Design your own workout from the poses in this book (see Chapter 12, "Crafting Your Personalized Yoga Practice"), find a comfortable practice area, dress in comfortable clothing (see Chapter 10, "How to Practice Yoga"), designate a regular practice time (whether once a week or twice a day—we suggest daily), and get ready for your very first asana!
