No matter how many years young you are, it is always a good idea to keep up a Yoga Asana practice.
An Asana practice can be modified to suit your mood, or need, as often as daily. Often, all you need is 10-15 minutes of key postures to tone and stretch your main muscle groups. At other times, your asana practice can extend, spontaneously, if time allows, for over two hours. Whatever the body needs at the moment.
The discipline lies in simply getting yourself to the mat, or towel.
Asana is the best preparation for a Pranayama/breathing practice, as well as a meditation practice.
# Establish/Maintain Asana Practice
If new to Asana, start with a 10-15 minute practice on your own.
If it's challenging to establish your own practice, take a yoga class 2-3 times/week - online, or at a local yoga studio, or the YMCA.
Below are sample sequences. Please contact Slava for specific personal recommendations, or find a local yoga teacher or yoga therapist. Slava is available for private yoga instruction and yoga therapy in San Diego, CA.
