Learn from an Expert
Before you start doing the asana (poses) all by yourself learn it from a qualified yoga teacher who will teach you the correct method of doing each asana. Also talk to him about any previous medical history, so that he’ll tell you which asana you need to follow in order to avoid complications.
Look at yourself
Look at the clothes you are wearing. They should be extremely comfortable. Avoid wearing jeans or clothes which are comparatively thick as they hinder your exercise. Also avoid wearing jewellery and other accessories. Wear clothes that stretch, twist and turn along with you.
Eat light before practicing
Yoga is generally practiced on an empty stomach or at least 3 hours after your meal. If you are really hungry just before your practice then eat light such as fruits or oats.
