Yoga can be practiced for a longer time in the winter season than in summer. Maximum time devoted for actually practicing yoga should not exceed forty-five minuets in a single day of winter. In summer, the maximum time for actual practice should be thirty minutes.
Time for rest may be allowed in addition according to the principal mentioned above. This difference in practicing time has to be maintained because of variation in impact of weather on the body.
Though there should be only one session of yoga practice in a day, those who would like to divide their time in two sessions should allow a gap of eight hours between the first and the second season.
A minimum practice of fifteen minutes per day should be quite satisfactory for maintaining good health. With the above mentioned clarifications abut therapeutic yoga and its basic requirements, let us now explain what is meant by ‘proper diet ‘in the yoga system.
A proper understanding of some of the established principles and advice about diet would help the practitioner realise the importance of food and its impact on the body system in a better way.
Although special diet charts for different types of diseases will be mentioned in the next issue, users of this article will be given detailed information later. Don’t forget to read.
