How many times a week should I practice yoga?

As with any form of exercise and for optimal benefits, two to three times a week is recommended. With a regular weekly yoga practice, your body will begin to form a kinesthetic memory which will easily guide you into the postures, help promote continual improved overall alignment, and help attain full integrity of the postures. Yoga can be practiced daily or incorporated on alternate days with any type of weight training or cardiovascular regimen. This is a personal decision based on your specific priorities or goals.
