My favorite thing to do is to practice yoga in the mornings. It helps me loosen up all those tired muscles and really get going in the morning. Here I will share with you some of my favorite videos from YouTube for Morning Yoga.
Why you should do Yoga in the Morning
As with any exercise, yoga will get your blood flowing. Exercise increases blood flow throughout the body and to releases endorphins in the brain, causing you to feel energized and awake. This is why doing a tough workout before bed is not such a great idea. Doing a Vinyasa flow, or Morning flow yoga practice in the mornings can have great positive effects on not only how you feel physically, but your mental outlook.
Waking up can sometimes feel like a chore. If you didn’t get a good enough nights sleep your body might feel stiff or ache-y, and the first place you head for is the coffee pot. While coffee is wonderful (I certainly think so) rolling out your mat and starting some light stretches may be the best thing to wake up those tired bones.
Yoga is good for your brain. Some say that Yoga is better for mental focus and clarity than any other exercise. This is because yoga is not only a physical exercise, but a mental exercise. While you are going through sequences you are basically giving your mind a good exercise as well.
One of the things yoga is known for is its ability to reduce stress in the body and mind. By learning how to breathe properly and connect your mind and body in a series of movements, it creates a sense of harmony. Yoga promotes relaxation and eases stress, and can cause levels of stress and anxiety to decrease with practice.
