But since yoga basically makes use of the different poses to achieve union of the body, mind and spirit, the follower should always arm himself with a yoga mat. A yoga mat is in fact one of the very basic and most important equipment that a person practicing yoga should invest in. Some poses can be very challenging to the physique that a person needs the mat to serve as cushion and protection against impact. 

The cow legged position is a great way to strengthen flexibility in both the arms and the legs. The person will start in a cross legged position and then put one leg over the other. The right arm should be raised into the air with the elbow bent with the left arm coming from the back until the fingers of both hands touch each other. 

A person who follows the Kundalini discipline can develop his conscious and subconscious self and then unify them to achieve the union of the divine leading to a higher level of existence. Some people may think that Kundalini Yoga is available only to specific groups of people. However, just about anyone who wants to awaken his inner strength can follow the Kundalini Yoga discipline. 

These were termed as the Upanishads (the root word being ‘upa’ which means near, ‘ni’ which means down and ‘shad’ meaning to sit), mainly described as a form of discipline which unites these six ‘aphorisms’: control of breathing or ‘pranayama’ meditation or ‘dhyana’, inhibition of the senses or ‘pratyahara’, examination or ‘tarka’, concentration or ‘dharana’, and ecstasy or ‘samadhi. 

It will be a good idea to wear loose clothing and bring a mat so that one can sit comfortably throughout the entire session. If the individual does not have time to go to the gym regularly, there are DVD s available in the market so this can be practiced in the comforts of one s home. Those who want to try something else can try Bikram or Yoga Booty which cater to those in the advanced classes. 

Some of the qualities a yoga teacher must have are: A complete understanding of yoga just because a person has started practicing yoga for a few months and is flexible enough to swing his leg over his shoulders doesn t mean he's equipped to teach in a yoga class. Yoga classes need a teacher who has expertise and who can also help a yoga student develop a better understanding of yoga.
