Yoga TTC in Rishikesh

If a yoga student wants to become a solemn yogi, the 1st question I ask is: "Do you have a yoga teacher?" I do not peruse we can have a "serious" practice if we are hopping around from teacher to teacher without any relevant direction. We all need a teacher who will get to know our particular situations, faults, and personality, and who wants to lead us down a path that will assist us to flame our own marks and develop as individuals.

What does it take to become a "serious yogi"?

Now comes another question: If we want to be "serious" about yoga, how usually should we practice yoga? Before we had children, my wife and I occasionally practiced for 6 hours a day (I realize this is anteriorly ultimate). Since having kids, we are lucky to get in 2 hours a day, but experiencing such long hours of yoga practice in the beginning years unwind my body in such a deep way that I can now practice yoga for a short duration and obtain the same results.

Whatever a student is interested in under the umbrella of yoga (asana, pranayama, kriyas, chanting, and meditation), I would stimulate that student to practice yoga daily, or at least on a steady basis. In his book Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell mentions a theory that it takes ten thousand hours of practice to become a specialist in anything. Even if a student practices yoga for twelve hours a week, every week, that adds up to only 624 hours a year, which means it would take over sixteen years to become a specialist in yoga (according to this theory). Personally, I have been practicing yoga for over thirty-two years and most of the time I still feel like I am a beginner!

Define your personal goals

Whether you are an endeavor to expert more advanced poses or just starting out in your practice, my best counsel would be: do as much yoga as you need to stow your heart. Everyone has a different necessity. I know people who are very happy practicing yoga for three minutes a day. That would not really work for me, but I do not punish them for that.

Some people are born yogis, others take a whole life period to get there. It can take many years to an expert even a single pose. When we effort to put the body in positions it is not ready for, it sets us up for damage. It is not like we can not work toward poses that are challenging... But it is always a journey: we start a pose, work on it for many years, and in the end get it dialed in. You can be an expert yogi and never master a pose, or you can master many poses and never be an expert yogi. To me, a yoga expert has cognized sameness in life. The most intensive gurus will tell you they are still struggling and if they don't, be careful. It is those who say they have achieved exhortation that I am alert of.
