The following recommended programs are intended as a progression from Lesson 1. The student should use his discretion in omitting the least necessary practices and adding the most necessary practices to suit the time he has available. For example, if your legs are still very stiff you should continue to practise the leg loosening exercises previously described1, as well as doing as many as possible of the practices outlined in this second lesson.
We have not included the practices of danta dhauti, neti and eye exercises in the programs because these can become part of your daily wash and bath routines. However, we recommend that they can be practised in the program chart given on page 68.
Note\ The best time to practise is in the morning. However, any other time is also suitable providing it is not after a meal. try to practise the techniques that you think you most need in any other time that you have available.
Sukhasana and vajrasana have not been included in the practice programs. We suggest you remember to practise them in your spare time. Sitting in vajrasana for a few minutes after meals is especially beneficial as it aids the process of digestion.
Whenever you feel fatigued or tense during the day, practise naukasana and/or shavasana to relax the mind and body. Make the effort to practise your program regularly every day This is sometimes difficult but brings the best results.
