Remember to honor any preexisting injuries or conditions that you have to safely perform your asanas, pranayamas, and all other limbs of your Yoga practice effectively.
You can adjust most poses and techniques to suit your individual needs.
Always remember that your breath has a direct connection to your nervous system, which is why a peaceful mind is connected to relaxed and conscious breathing.
When practicing your Yoga (any limb on your eightfold path), or just generally going about your day, check-in with yourself often to ensure that you are breathing deeply, fully, and with smooth, intentional focus and flow.
This awareness and intention will come in handy for self-regulation and for de-stressing in overwhelming situations. This intentional breathing pattern will also train your mind and body to become more synchronized, calm, and resilient over time as well.
