Guidelines for using the āsana classes on this app
- Practice yogāsana on an empty stomach. It's fine to do some gentle joint-freeing any time you feel like it, but for more concerted work that will tone the internal organs and work deeply to balance the body and all its energy systems, it is best if the stomach is free from digestive tasks. Practice before eating in the morning or a good couple of hours after a meal and half an hour after liquids.

- Keep warm and comfortable throughout the practice. The video was recorded in a warm location, but wear as many layers as you need to practice comfortably. If you are practising somewhere cooler, keep a sheet/blanket/extra clothes to hand so you can cover yourself for the relaxation at the end of the class.

- Practice postures where you stand on the feet or hands and feet on a firm surface to facilitate the cultivation of space through the joints.

- Engage. Use the practice as it is intended: as a means to cultivate centred yet expansive awareness.

- Remember that the purpose of yogāsana is to cultivate steady ease through the whole of your body and individual system. So ensure that your practice is nourishing and enjoy it!
