What is the best way to partake in MYO's videos?
To help you get the most out of My Yoga Online here are a few suggestions.
Establish your environment by turning off the radio, television and even the telephone so that you can devote yourself fully to your practice. You may want to lower the lights or light a candle.
Yoga is best performed on an empty stomach, but not completely hungry. It is best to wait at least 1 to 2 hours time after you eat.
Take off your shoes and socks. Bare feet are essential especially for standing poses.
Wear comfortable clothes. Choose clothing that does not inhibit movement and stretching. Anything is fine as long as it is comfortable.
We recommend familiarizing yourself with the video or audio material before performing the practice. You can fast forward if you would like, using the controls on the screen.
Your favorite practices can be added to your Favorites Practices for easy reference in the future. Be sure and choose a video with a practice level that is right for your experience.
The volume should be at a comfortable level.
We suggest viewing the practices at Full Screen. Just click the full screen button in the bottom right hand corner of the video player. Press esc button to come out of full screen.
Do not skip the mediation or cool-down (Savasana) period at the end of the practice. The entire class is part of a complete mind-body process. These aspects of the class are key.
Most important of all, have fun with your practice. This is not a competition so remember not to push beyond your comfort level. Yoga will teach you to listen to your body. The smaller the steps you take the greater the rewards.
