Beginner to intermediate program
maitelasa 6 hours ago


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!
