The different yoga postures produce different results and affects in different ways energetic, mental, emotional as well as physical being. When you hold a yoga pose or posture, be sure that you can breathe properly, deeply and slowly, using Dirga or Ujjayi Pranayama (breathing exercise). If you are not taking help of a yoga teacher then watch Yoga Videos for better understanding. You will know how to hold, where should hold and how to stretch when you practice asanas regularly. You may feel pain, fatigue or strain in muscles whether you do not practice asanas or yoga postures on a regular basis. Do not worry at all, regular practice will reduce all issues and you will become an expert. It is better if you take help from a yoga teacher.

When you do yoga, try to practice Pranayam or Breathing exercise – like Surya Bhedan, Udgeeth Pranayam, Bahya Pranayama, Kapalbhati Pranayama, Bhramari Pranayama, Bhastrika Pranayama etc for better results.
