Value of Morning Practice
Yoga asanas can be practiced in the morning or/and evenings. Early mornings are considered
conducive for practicing asanas as there is a lot of positive energy at the beginning of the new day
and sufficient gap after previous evening dinner. A morning practice might involve asanas to energize a person so that he/she is set up for the full day ahead. Pranayama, a very important component of yoga, again can be practiced at various times through again, mornings are considered the best.
But for many, mornings might not be a convenient time. It’s perfectly fine to do asana practice in the evenings but with more pranayama and meditation to calm down at the end of the day. The asana practice will be tailored according to the time of practice. The time aspect includes the time of day when the practice happens, time in terms of weather – hot/cold /rainy), how much time available for practice, and how often one can practice. A specific asana practice can be tailored to meet the requirements based on these various factors. Or practice in the evening might focus on calming a person to get ready for a good nights sleep after an action-packed stressful day!
