Schedule for Intermediate Yoga | Yoga.in


Yoga is a non-competitive sport so there is no need for any special physical traits to practice yoga. All you need is desire to learn, patience, and perseverance. We do not practice yoga to become flexible, it is a practice for improving concentration, attention span and awareness. Flexibility, when it comes, is a by-product of it.

No, this is for intermediate and advanced students only. It may be difficult for beginners, however if you wish to learn you can check out our beginner’s class here.  

Traditionally, it is ideal time to practice is at sunrise or sunset. Most people prefer to practice early in the morning because during this time the body and mind are still fresh and quiet and there are few external disturbances 

One should wait at least four hours before practicing after a full meal. The two main reasons for that are first, the stomach and intestines are full and heavy after a meal which restricts movement. Secondly, practicing after a meal disturbs the body's natural flow of energy as it is required to digest food.  

Props make it possible for every person to enhance their Sadhana (practice of yoga), regardless of their physical limitations. 

The use of props allows one to: 

– Perform difficult asanas independently 

– Achieve and maintain correct alignment  

– Holding asanas for longer and relax, thus attaining their full benefit 

– Understand the asanas on a deeper level 

– continue practicing despite of chronic or temporary ailments and improve their condition.
