Daniel Paris Guide to Yoga
Thinking Outside the Mat
This guide has been created to help you build a personal practice. Each chapter explains a different element of a session and introduces fundamental scientific concepts behind the Yoga for no Yogi method.
The beginning of any practice
Before getting into poses, you will need a few minutes to prepare your mind and body. It is crucial to increase oxygen levels, stimulate blood circulation, and elevate body temperature. Such conditions are necessary to explore your full physical and mental potential.
With this guide, you will have the necessary knowledge to start your home practice. Please remember that this is not a substitute for any medical therapy. Talk to your doctor before starting your practice.
I encourage you to not only create your practice but also check what is available in your local yoga studio. You can learn new poses and sequences, or you can also get some corrections and a word of advice from the teachers. Keep your practice open to new ideas. Yoga is constantly evolving.
My hope is for you to get interested in developing a positive connection with your body and your mind. This relationship will impact the way you see yourself and others. The end goal is for you to take better care of your person.
I recommend you to start small, only a few minutes every other day. Then increase the duration. Please be disciplined. You would get better results doing 15 minutes of yoga every day than 3 hours once a week. Always notice how you feel before and after a session. That will keep you moving forward.
