5 reasons to practice yoga early in the morning

1. Feel good factor

What could be more virtuous than an early start with an invigorating yoga practice? The combination is hard to beat when it comes to feeling good about yourself. And, while getting up early can be challenging on even a good morning, once you’ve finished your yoga practice, you’ll begin the day
with a positive mindset and a spring in your step.

2. A healthy approach to the day

Having kick-started your metabolism with a vitalising yoga practice, you’ll be inspired to continue the day with good habits like healthy eating, tall posture and less of the bad stuff.

3. Energy and focus

It may surprise you to know that, rather than tire you out, an early and active start to your day keeps you energised for longer. So, after a busy session at work or school, you can still enjoy quality time with your family and friends at the end of the day.

4. A better night’s sleep

Yoga calms the nervous system and helps to reduce tension. This sets you up for a less stressful day and increases your chances of a deeper, more restful, more restorative sleep. All the better for another early start!

5. Strength and flexibility

One of the quickly noticeable benefits of yoga is a stronger, more toned, more flexible body. As someone with a background in running and sports, I can honestly tell you that when I first started yoga I couldn’t touch my knees. I can now – and quite a lot more!

Join us for an early morning ashtanga Mysore class at BAYoga. We’re here every  Friday from 6am to 8am. Try a class for £5.

In case you’ve never done yoga Mysore style before, it’s a self-practice class with a set sequence of movements that focus on breath, balance, strength and flexibility. Regardless of whether you’re new to yoga or more experienced, you’ll practice at your own pace and at your own level. So, if you’re a total beginner, you’ll start with a sequence of movements called sun salutations, and over time add
more and more poses as your practice develops.

You’re welcome to start the class at whatever time works for you, not necessarily 6am. As long as you arrive an hour before the end of the class, we can fit in a great practice, as the teacher will work with you one to one.

We look forward to seeing you at BAYoga bright and early!
