Martin Wood, Great game plan. This really helps!
Practice and consistency is key!
I feel that achieving proper form even if it involves mastering a modification is a priority and repetition definitely helps you get there as you gain muscle memory and improve mobility.
That said, I would also say that doing the yoga that brings you enjoyment is also important in keeping you consisitently making it to the mat. That is a the hardest challenge for beginners including myself and I encourage you to try different styles of yoga (yin, power, vinyasa, restorative etc...).
I personally like to intuitively program my workouts based off how I am feeling:
Everyday >> Vinyasa (flow)Stressed out/tired >> RestorativeAches and pain >> YinFeeling anxious from quarantine >> Power
When I have worked out in the past, the focus was on repetition over time. So, if I added a new exercise, I would try to do it a couple of times a week to let my body learn how to do it better. I am not hearing the same focus on repeating things so I can learn to do them better, deeper stretches, etc. However, I have only been doing beginner yoga for 3 weeks, so maybe I'm just missing something. How should I be using yoga programs and classes over the long term? What should be my game plan? TIA
