This is part of a series of blogs called Practice Tips.
As we expand our understanding of yoga, the amount of practices expand with us. We become aware of pranayama, meditation, more postures. We realize we could study texts, philosophy, or anatomy. Quickly, we realize there are so many directions we could go in. How do we choose?
There is no right or wrong answer. The best thing to do is to follow our interests. Choose what we are excited about and what intrigues us.
The best practice is the one that we'll do.
If we choose to focus on something that we are interested in, chances are we will actually come back to it on a regular basis. If we choose something that we should do, but don't care much about, chances are we won't.
This is not to say we should never practice something that we don't like. Of course, we should develop areas of weakness either in our practice or our understanding. But we need to be careful. We shouldn't choose only the things that we struggle with, if it will make us give up the practice entirely.
If there is a posture that excites you, practice that one everyday. If you're taking a class and the teacher doesn't include that posture, practice it after the class. Commit to your own interests and develop them. If you are interested in an old yogic text, start reading. Take it page by page.
One interest leads to another. Over time, we end up with experience in many different areas. But this doesn't happen all at once. Choose the practice that interests you today. The right practice is the one you'll do.

I think one should do yoga in the early morning so that your body acts faster. And also if you need you can keep a instructor to guide you and help you.

Not only has it improved my physical health and flexibility, but it has also helped me cultivate a sense of inner peace and mindfulness. The practice of yoga has taught me to be present in the moment, to let go of stress and worry, and to embrace a more balanced and harmonious way of living.
