1.When cold, brisk air is blowing outside, I crave practicing yoga in a heated room. Walking around barefoot in a tank top and feeling the warm arm on my skin is incredibly liberating.

2.Don’t just head to class in your just your capris. Be sure to wear warm layers over your yoga outfit. A warm body is less prone to injury.

3.If you live in a very cold climate, try to get to class at least 10 minutes early to sit in the hot room to allow your muscles to warm up before diving into Downward Dog. Do some Sun Salutations on your own to warm up faster.

5. If you have a cold, you can stay home and do some vinyasa-style warm-up. A good warm-up will make you hot, even sweaty. And it’s just the thing you need to kick your cold and unclog your stuffy nose. This is a great time to test out your home practice or use your favorite yoga DVDs.
