How often should I practice Adamantine® Yoga?
Adamantine® Yoga is intended to be practiced daily, Monday through Saturday, as the first activity of the day. While it is not necessary to begin the practice this way, maximum benefits will be experienced once this full process has been realized.
Do I need any special equipment to practice Adamantine® Yoga?
A good quality yoga mat is essential to the practice of Adamantine® Yoga. Ideally your mat should be a minimum of 26” wide and 71” long. The surface texture should be slip resistant, even when wet from light perspiration. If you perspire easily on exertion you may consider using a mat towel for extra traction.
Some Adamantine® Yoga posture modifications require the use of yoga blocks for added support. This is specific to your individual needs and not all practitioners will require blocks.
Manduka offers mat options that meet these recommendations as well as many other eco-friendly products to support you in your practice.
