If they have a medical condition, should always check with the doctor to make sure yoga is suitable for them. Every one should wear comfortable clothing that will not restrict the movement or get in the way while practicing the postures. People should never practice on a full stomach, must allow at least 90 minutes after eating before they start their class.

Also people should listen to their body and move into each position slowly and carefully. Yoga encourages self-awareness, which is enhanced as people move gracefully thorough the poses. Yoga is best practiced in bare foot, which enhances the sensitivity of being in a pose. People should never compare and compete with anyone in the class and should focus on their breathing as they move in and out of their poses. People need to breathe smoothly and gently in and out through their nose without holding the breath in postures and should exhale as they stretch into a pose.
