Suggested sequence of what to follow during yoga practice

Sukshma Vyayam(Warmup) -> Asana's -> Pranayam -> Meditation
Start with sukshma vyayam(warm up) before starting asana practice. One set of Suyra Namaskar is also can be consider to warm up your body. Each asana can be practiced minimum 30 seconds and multiple repeatations until you get perfect postion of the asana(Purna sthiti).The longer you stay in purna sthiti is better for your health. Practice Pranayam after the asana practice is over. Activating your prana(vital enrgy) system and ending with pranayam/meditation is suggested best daily practice.

Depending upon how much time you can spend, it can be atleast 15 minutes to 45 minutes every day.
