In its entirety, yoga lessons are quite a difficult test for a beginner. Therefore, hatha yoga for beginners offers a simpler performance of some asanas, as well as a certain sequence of them.
Proper execution should be accompanied by a sense of comfort, or a little discomfort when learning a new posture, or its complication. When learning lessons, you should not endure severe pain. Performing should be gradual. Do not continue movement if you do not perform it correctly. Pranayama is a system that allows you to effectively and comfortably turn off pain, increase the amplitude of movements.
