Yoga can be practised by young and old alike. While there is no one who should be excluded, check with your doctor before you begin if you suffer from a medical condition or have any doubts.
Wear comfortable, stretchy clothing for your practice. Do not wear anything tight or restrictive especially around the waist and hip joints. Be prepared to work with bare feet. Warm clothing including socks will be required for relaxation. A blanket or towel is also useful during this time.
Take a non-slip Yoga mat, or for the short term an aerobics or foam camping mat, something large enough to lie down on which will not slip (I do have a few spares - let me know if you'd like to borrow one).
A period of one hour should elapse after light meals e.g. toast or light sandwich, before beginning practise. Two to four hours after a heavier meal.
Breathe through the nose unless otherwise instructed. Violent movements and straining should be avoided. Work at your own pace, within your own capacity. There is no competition or ‘end gaining’. If a stage of a posture is difficult, there are always modifications or alternatives you can do. These will help prepare the body before attempting the next stage of a posture. If a medical condition prohibits a certain posture I will try to give modifications or alternatives, or you can rest.
