Proper breathing is of particular importance in yoga classes. The whole practice is based on deep full-fledged breathing, so the control of inhalation and exhalation becomes the starting point of work in asanas. By the way, for beginners, the opportunity to master breathing techniques
in yoga is one of the key arguments of classes with a coach, and not independently. Since the coach always orients how to do it correctly and points out mistakes.
Without proper breathing – steady, comfortable and deep – performing asanas will not bring much benefit. In yoga, breathing is the main link between the body and mind. It is believed that frequent breathing contributes to the restlessness of the mind, and deep breathing, on the contrary, calms it. It is a calm mind that allows all initiatives to be effective.Power and sleep mode
To adhere to a balanced diet and sleep regime is necessary for anyone to feel healthy and rested, but for those who practice yoga, this rule is one of the key. To make progress in yoga, it is important to pay more attention to what and when you eat, as well as when you go to bed and when you wake up.
The yogi's diet consists mainly of fresh vegetables and fruits, greens, legumes, grain bread, high-quality protein and sources of iron. Meat of animals and birds are trying to completely exclude. It is not recommended to eat canned, fried, spicy food. Important rules to follow:
- do not overeat,
- have dinner no later than two hours before bedtime,
- do not drink water
- during meals,
- chew food thoroughly,
- do not overindulge tea and coffee (no more than two cups a day).
- Alcohol and smoking should be completely abandoned.
Discipline in relation to rest is also required, since the physical and psychological state directly depends on the quality of sleep. If a person goes to bed late, he does not have time to rest, even if he wakes up late, because in the late hours the body produces little melatonin – the hormone responsible for regulating sleep and wakefulness cycles. Its insufficient level leads to the fact that the psyche recovers worse and the next day in the morning a person
does not feel rested.
Yoga teachers advise not to neglect this rule, since sleep disorders can lead to serious diseases in the body, and yoga classes themselves will not bring the expected result.Don't get hung up on the results

it is advised to focus less on the results, since high expectations automatically provoke the fear of failure,and this negatively affects the psyche, and can lead to physical injuries during training. It is important to praise yourself for each activity, get maximum pleasure from it, and the result will not take long to wait.
