How many times should you do a posture?

I was wondering how many times should you do a posture if it doesn't say. In the book I have they tell you how many to do on some postures but not all of them. Should you just do those postures one time?

I generally hold a pose for about a minute, about five breaths after I positioned myself properly, if the instructions doesn't say otherwise.

I also hold for five to eight long breaths.

I generally don't set rules or times for holding postures. If it feels right, your breathing won't alter and you feel like you can stay there all day. If you breath rate speeds up you are probably working the pose too hard.

Listen to your body and it will tell you when to hold and when to release.
