Development is your personal business. And training should be practiced only for yourself, not for other people, not for those who may pay attention to your own success, not for your own prestige, not for your own carrier and not for your teacher. Try to do everything in a correct and quality fashion not because somebody thinks that you need it, but for yourself. This is the only approach that may lead to quick results and move «the main» in the consciousness.
Training consists of elements (exercises) that require, first, concentration and the focusing of attention, and secondly, relaxation and contemplation.
Complying with the first requirement means expressing will, whereas the second is the depriving of will.
The method of practice should correspond to the type of action. And the set should correspond to the elementary exercises being practiced. Neglecting these rules is a grave mistake that reduces the effectiveness of training to practically zero.
It is necessary to master different training techniques and apply them as required in accordance with the exercise being practiced.
One should learn to manipulate training methods with the same speed as the elements-exercises. And should learn to do this perfectly and without mistakes.
For example, strength-based training, lazily oriented towards minimum efforts and «recollections about sandwiches» and home coziness, or the development of flexibility and relaxation with preserving internal hardness and «bellicosity».
A special case is preparatory or intermediary elements-exercises. So, for example, relaxation during intervals between Asanas should only comprise peripheral coverings and should only extend as far as physical, emotional and mental bodies. But it should not try to effect the intention of training and the Power of Spirit. In this event concentration and hardness of the Crystal of Spirit should be always preserved. Otherwise, the resulting process will break the advancement of the true training goal.
