In the back of the book “Yoga: Your Home Practice Companion” (p170) are suggested practice sequences offering routines for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. At each level there is a 20-, 40- and 60-minute sequence. Each posture has a repetition or time frame on which to hold the posture. Begin and end your chosen sequence in corpse pose. At the top of each level’s sequence a few suggested relaxation postures are offered. Create a space at home the size of your yoga mat plus enough room to stretch both arms out to the sides. Begin to create this space as a sanctuary of tranquility, leaving the pace solely for yoga asanas and meditation. Soon it will have the energy that you happily retreat to each day.
