By Javier Fuller

Yoga in true sense is described as a system that is scientific in nature. It has a spiritual touch  and was a practice that originated in India. Yoga is derived from a Sanskrit word, Yoke. Yoga provides you with physical and mental peace. Yoga is a pure form of exercising. It requires obedience to its certain rules and principles from your side. Like any other procedure, if these rules are not followed then more harm than good can be caused to you.

So if you really want to take benefits from this impeccable exercising type, it is advisable for you to follow its proper methodology. There are certain things that you should keep in mind:

1. Practicing yoga has no particular time. All depends on your convenience. But it is generally said that if you start your day with a good yoga session, your whole day is full of energy. But whatever time you choose, you should stick for that time. Yoga helps only if it is practiced regularly at a regular time. Irregular practice will not give you any good results. Start by practicing 15 minutes and then gradually increase the time period to an hour.

2. After fixing the time, the next important thing that follows is the place where you intend to do it. The place of practicing yoga should be neat and clean. Prefer doing yoga under the open sky.
