Thank you for your guidance in this exercise. I have found frustrations with Pranayama, much preferring Asana over the years but recently going back to basics to relearn and revisit and I can definitely appreciate the benefits and connection to a more rounded Yoga practice.

First of all, thank you very much for this great great website. I have just started to use it, and it almost feels as is I'm in a "presential" class! I love how well the teachers explain the practices.

I have question: I'm following DYWM's beginner to intermediate 8 week program, which has these breath exercises as well as meditation. A question I have is whether the program suggests to do all three (yoga exercise, meditation and breathing exercise) 5 days per week, or whether the meditation and breathing is once a week. I guess that the more, the better, but since 2.5h of daily practice seems a substantial amount of time I wanted to know what your recommendation is.

Thank you!

Hello, Maite.
Thanks for the feedback and the question. The weekly breathing exercise and meditation are meant to be flexible and to be done when you can. Yes, it would be a lot of yoga to do them both every day, along with the 5 weekly classes! So, at a minimum, listen to one breathing exercise and one meditation within a week.
