Best Yoga Poses For Back

AFTERNOON YOGA ROUTINES BALANCING

Midday is the best time to find balance, since the sun is at its highest point. This is the time of the Pitta dosha when we are naturally the most energized, but can also be depleted and overworked, worked up, and in need of a break to recharge. This is the time we should have our largest meal since the digestive fire is at its strongest, so your practice should be nourishing and replenishing. Practice sun salutations slower, and maybe leave out some of the vinyasas or practice them at a gentler level.
