2. Learn to accept your limitations and then slowly begin to work beyond them (through regular practice).
3. Listen to your body. If you can't go/bend that far yet, don't push it. You don't need to prove anything to anybody.
4. If you need to some help by using a prop (a pillow/blanket/towel/yoga block), feel free to do so. We all need help from time to time.
5. Deep, mindful breathing can help you relieve some tension and they're especially important when doing twists.
6. Be patient. When one part of your body is tight, take deeper breaths to relieve the tension and then allow the muscles to soften at their own pace.
7. We are rarely symmetrical. We carry tension in different parts of our body.
8. Simple movements (no jumping around) can really target your muscles and make them ache.
9. A good muscle ache is OK, but you shouldn't feel any pain at all.
10. Yoga can be so addictive! :-D
Here's the latest one I tried yesterday and my goodness did I feel a lot of muscle ache afterwards! I like doing different ones to spice things up, but I'm a total beginner.
