Guidance of a teacher
Never practice Yoga without your Yoga instructor. Follow what your teacher says. If you try Yoga without a teacher, you'll try to move forward faster, which can lead to injury. Therefore, always do asanas under the guidance of your Yoga teacher.
Food & Beverage
Diet also plays an important part while practising Yoga. In today's times, We are blindly copying the western eating habits and not much importance is given to our health. We eat oily dishes, pizzas, burgers which are hard to digest. This is the root of our diseases and thus we should stop it immediately. We should pay more attention to our Indian food and civilization. Eat light and nutritious food and drink as much water as possible.
