A daily yoga routine must involve all principles of yoga. This means that you must:
-begin with a warm-up by doing gentle stretches, eye-exercises and neck rolls
-start asanas – a cycle of postures which include sitting and standing positions
-relax the body gradually after the postures
-start pranayam, or breathing techniques
-sit in padmasan (lotus position) for meditation
All this must be done on an empty stomach, and any food a yogi eats must be sattvic (pure, light, vegetarian).
