Advice on doing yoga

After having lunch, after how many hours we can do yoga?

Before you start practicing yoga you must make sure that the food has gone through the digestive tract far enough so that your stomach is empty. When there is less food in the digestive tract and the bowels are clear, energy flows more freely. The most common yoga advice for beginners is that you maintain an interval of at least two hours between your workout and having lunch. In case of a heavy lunch the gap should be increased to four hours.
If you take this yoga advice for beginners you can avert the frustrations that come from starting yoga in ignorance of its complexities. Before you start any classes, purchase a yoga book or DVD aimed at beginners. Practicing some of the positions in the book or DVD at home before you start classes will boost your confidence. Good yoga advice for beginners would be to choose the exercise that suits them the best from the myriad styles of yoga. Early in the morning before breakfast or late evening is the best time to do yoga. You must make sure to empty your bladder and bowels before attending the yoga classes. Comfortable and loose clothing should be worn for free movement. Make sure you seek the advice of a doctor if you have any condition or injury that you think yoga could accentuate.
Good yoga advice for children would be to make sure that the child is comfortable with the pose being practiced. Not all types of yoga poses are for children as their bodies are still growing and won’t be able to handle the intense exercises. The area should also be cleared from any sharp or breakable objects.
Kundalini is basically the energy that is untapped at the bottom of the spine. By awakening the seven chakras you can draw up the energy. When the energy has reached the crown chakra complete enlightenment happens. Each of the kundalini yoga exercises are done along with certain breathing patterns purported to bring the freed energy from the lower body upwards. Useful advice when doing kundalini yoga for beginners is to warm-up and stretch the spine before beginning any of the exercises.
The most important advice for beginners practicing yoga is that the exercises should never be forced or strained.  The techniques applied will differ among different people, and what one person is comfortable with may not have the same effect on you. So leave your competitive side for other activities and reap the numerous benefits by following the yoga advice given for beginners.

Advice on doing yoga 

Yoga must ideally be practiced the first thing in the morning upon waking and before breakfast.  The environment in the morning is best suited for meditation and breathing in order that the individual gains maximum advantage of the exercise. If you must eat then yoga must be done at least four to five hours after a full meal. Another option of practicing yoga is in the evenings sometime around sunset. The bowel must ideally be empty and the individual can take a shower before starting on yoga. Although some yoga practitioners believe that yoga can be done at any given time of the day, an important rule to follow is that it should never be done on a full stomach or immediately after consuming any form of meals.

To begin with, yoga must be started with asanas and then followed by Pranayama lastly followed by meditation. Although there is no hard and fast rule that it should be performed strictly in a particular fashion, the key to good health is to enjoy the practice of yoga and fell good about it. After meals an individual tends to feel full or bloated and lethargic; moreover with the various bends, poses, twists and positions in yoga, the individual is likely to feel nauseous, experience cramps or feel giddy.
