We often think that Yoga doesn’t need a warm-up. Sure, it may not need stretching or jogging, but it does need certain practices to be followed if you want to get maximum benefits out of your yoga routine. From the ideal time of eating pre- and post-yoga, to when you may need to consult a therapist, following is the list of what you should do before and after your Yoga practice.
Before the practice:
Clean your surroundings
Yoga should be done on an empty stomach or light stomach
Yoga should be performed in a calm and quiet atmosphere
Consume honey in luke-warm water if you feel weak
Bladder and bowel should be empty before you start
Use a mattress, yoga mat, durrie, or folded blanket
Wear light and comfortable cotton clothes
After the practice:
Have a bath after 20-30 mins of yoga.
Eat after a gap of 20-30 mins of yoga.
