Yogic practitioners can benefit by modifying their diet and life style relative to their predominant biological humor according to Ayurveda, so as to avoid causing imbalances in the life force.

Those who do not know their constitutions can follow the general guidelines of a sattvic diet ( a vegetarian diet, using fresh organic fruit, vegetables, nuts, grains and dairy products, along with mild sweet spices like ginger, cardamom and cinnamon. Beans except mung in moderation as well as natural sugars, salt and sour articles in moderation)

More specifically, yogic practices are part of Rasayana (rejuvination) therapy in Ayurveda… Those interested in the topic further can examine Ayurvedic teachings on Rasayana and Kaya Kalpa (transforming the physical body)

“Make a conscious awareness of your breath your primary focus when practicing asana. Try beginning your practice from the time you enter into a room. Focus on your breath as you walk in, warm up and start your asana practice. Make keeping your attention constantly on the movement of the breath your yoga practice. It’s helpful to apply light Ujjayi breathing. In this way, you can use your breath to monitor the degree of difficulty and to link the poses together. You will be able to hear any disturbances in the pose from the sound of the breath. Link the postures together with the breath, hold a focus on the breath as you move from pose to pose.”
