It might take you some time to get there. Well, every person is different. If you were able to find a good yoga teacher, try asking many questions after your sessions. You can even ask the instructor to please keep an eye on your poses during your practices. Most yoga teachers love helping their students individually. Of course it’s crucial that you identify experienced teachers. It would be very beneficial to receive advice from your new teachers; in that way, you would learn and be able to understand more about your practice. If you aren’t sure, just ask around. Moreover, remember that this is your practice. If you need to come out of posture earlier, do so. If you need a delay before you get into the posture – take your time. You do what’s best for you.
