Benefits of Early Morning Yoga

Your days are so busy, and your time is valuable. It’s tough to fit in a yoga class during the middle of the day, and by the evening you may have unexpected plans, or you may be too tired. You know, life is like that and this happens. So doing your practice first thing in the morning is a relief. You take the pressure off your self during the day and get to focus on your work, family, friends, eating, and life. You can also remember how awesome you were for making the choice to get up and treat yourself to yoga.

So set your alarms at 5:00 o clock. Wake up to the bright and early morning. See the beautiful sunrise. Take a quick shower and get ready for your yoga. Early morning yoga has many health benefits.
  1. Yoga breathing will stimulate your body and mind.All that fresh oxygen will wake up your brain like a jolt of caffeine. Also, this energy boost from deep breathing will last all day, not just a couple of hours like caffeine. You will become energized and clear. Sometimes you wake up feeling groggy, but yoga breathing will clear the fuzz away and you will have clarity and be ready to face your day brighter and more alive.
  2. You will be more calm all day.Taking yoga early in the morning will set the tone for your whole day. It will calm and center you before you have to step out into the chaos of life. You will be ready for any situation that comes your way. That traffic jam? No worries, you did yoga. You remember your breath. You're reminded of your early morning intention that you set. In yoga, you remember to practice kindness, compassion and love. Others can feel that. Life’s dramas will seem small in comparison.
  3. You will look younger.The stretching in yoga makes your body tighter, lighter, and brighter. It raises serotonin levels, endorphins and other feel good chemicals and that will all show up in the glow of your skin. Studies show people who practice yoga can actually slow down the aging of the heart, liver and kidneys. All of your insides will reflect on the outside. You eyes will be brighter. Your skin will have a glow. Your body will feel taller and longer.
  4. You can eat more that day.Yoga helps speed up your metabolism which means that you can eat more and burn calories faster. When you practice yoga early in the day you improve your digestion and food will burn up faster, and more nutrients will move through your body. When you have enough nutrients moving through efficiently, then your body metabolizes fats and carbs faster and your insides will be running at tip top speed.
