Listen to your body, build up the sequence. In the studios generally the classes are 90 min including 5-10 min Centering and 5-10 Meditation (kind or warn-up and cool-down), so 70 min of class in reality. How is in your Dru Yoga class? the thing is to build-up not to burn-out, you can split the sequence in such a way that by the end of the week you have practiced the whole thing.
I like to do different poses every day, it not boring and the whole body receives attention.

I chose to practice 3x a week for 30 minutes to an hour. This schedule is based on my fitness/comfort level.
Everyone has a different body with unique needs. Fool around with your schedule a bit and see what feels the best for you.

maybe your supposed to build up to the level where you can do the entire sequence? If you are in pain, definitely cut back to the point where that doesn't happen. If that means you practice part of the sequence and then stop, so be it. You will improve over time with a regular practice. And keep in mind, some days will likely be easier than others. If you are motivated to do more, then maybe break it up through the day if you can, do some in the morning, some at lunch break and more in the evening?

If you are paying for this program, there should be a way to ask if this is appropriate from whoever you are paying for the privilege too.

I'm working on getting a steady routine practicing Dru yoga because I started the Dru yoga teacher training last november. Before that I followed hatha yoga classes weekly for about seven years, and practiced at home.
I am running into some issues and problems; I'd like to ask the advice and support of others who may be more experienced than me.
The teacher training is one weekend per two months, so in between I am pretty much 'on my own' with practicing.

I wonder just how much I should practice. I got conflicting messages from the training.
I chose to in January go for half an hour, four times a week 'at least' and sometimes I'll do more. I also have one Dru Yoga class per week.
Would this, in your idea, be enough to get more 'fluent' with a certain type of yoga? Considering that after three years the idea is that one can teach it.

I started out just trying to practice all the exercises we'd learned but found myself still not finished after one to one and a half hour I found that demotivating AND my joints complained, so my conclusion was to do less per day.
