What order should yoga poses be done?

Although some instructors or classes complete yoga poses in a certain order, there is no right or wrong order or way to do yoga. You simply have to explore what type (or types) of yoga speaks to you as an individual. Yoga is the ability to direct the mind exclusively towards an object and maintain that direction without any distractions. Once known, these reactions can be controlled step by step.

We could draw an analogy with a driver who is on the road to reach a certain destination. It is not guided by a map but by the road itself. The adjustments that the driver makes at all times to keep the vehicle on the road are determined by the changing conditions of the road and by the driver, who is on the road to reach a certain destination. What then is the destination or goal of practicing asanas? As Desikachar states: “When these principles are followed correctly, practicing asanas will help a person to withstand and even minimize external influences on the body, such as age, climate, diet and work.

Repeat one more time, maintaining the pose for 2 to 4 breaths. G) Adopt the pose and stay for 2 to 4 breaths. E) Take a breath, stay in the pose and then go down. F) Stay two breaths in the pose, then go down and link your movement to the breath.

Proceed this way through a stay of 4 breaths. Colleen Saidman Yee, who directs Yoga Journal's upcoming Yoga for Inner Peace online course, analyzes the importance of letting go of sadness and shows a sequence for releasing pain and other bitter emotions.
