MORNING ROUTINES YOGA ENERGIZING
In Ayurvedic and yogic wisdom, the morning hours of 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. are ruled by the Kapha dosha, or the energy of heaviness. No wonder we tend to feel sleepy and need that cup of coffee to get going! An energizing, invigorating, and faster paced practice is recommended in the morning, along with waking up as early as possible even before 6! The morning routines that follow often contain a vinyasa between sides. They are all energizing and clear your mental fog.
