While it is not crucial to cook ourselves in a steam room to sweat, burn calories, or knot ourselves into intricate postures, it is a good idea to thaw the body before we begin our practice. In cold weather, hot showers can help loosen the body, although the actual practice can help generate a healthful inner heat later. Warm ups that enhance our yoga practice include the following ten pre-stretches – neck/ shoulder/ knee/ wrist roll; thigh/ ankle flex; side/ back/ forward stretch; full body stretch on tip toe.
