What about practicing yoga early in the morning? What’s the difference between doing it in the morning, the afternoon, or by the end of the day?


Having any fitness routine or regular exercise — whether it be yoga, Pilates, cardio, HIIT, or running — has several health benefits like improving your night’s sleep, it can help with weight loss, reduce pain, and even better your sex life!

But does it make any difference the time of the day you practice it? That’s a question many yoga practitioners make. The answer depends on your personality, needs, and goals. Apart from the time you chose, you’re still reaping the benefits yoga or any regular exercise bring. But by my own experience and many yogis I have met, yoga in the early hours is indeed the best time to do it! Let’s understand.

It Sets You Up For The Day

In a good mood and a high energy level, you’ll have more energy to achieve and do more things throughout your day. It gives you more focus and a good dose of boosting your mood to your day ahead. For instance, if you feel sleepy during the morning, even a few hours after you woke up, it will forcedly wake you up and prepares the brain to start the day.

It Gives You Discipline

If you’re just like me, you might get overwhelmed by your daily to-do list, and skip your morning practice to either gain more minutes in bed or jump straight into work might be quite tempting.


When you commit to yourself, it doesn’t matter if you’re tired or have deadlines to follow; it will help you with the temptation to put things off, thus creating some sense of discipline.

Yoga combined with savasana (the corpse pose) done by the end of each yoga class and pranayama (breathing exercises), gives your mind a chance to declutter and focus on the present moment. With just 5 minutes of any breathing technique, it helps you to calm down your busy mind.


It Reduces Stress Levels

Yoga is a fantastic tool largely used in stress management and to alleviate anxiety. With more oxygenated cells and a clearer focus on the day ahead, you will help the body and the nervous system relax, lower stress levels and you’ll be able to face your day with a more positive approach.

Waking up slightly earlier to include yoga into your morning routine is a healthy habit, and let’s be honest, it feels good too!

Also, you’ll be more prone to making more healthier choices. Morning yoga can work as a reminder that movement feels good in your body, and you’re more likely to incorporate healthier options throughout your day.
