MORNING ROUTINES YOGA ENERGIZING

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.

GET UP AND GO

TIME: 15 to 30 minutes QUALITY: Energizing

This will wake up your mind and body and get you moving right out the door. Flow from one pose to the next with the rhythm of your breath like a moving meditation.
