“The very heart of yoga practice is ‘abyhasa’ steady effort in the direction you want to go.” ― Sally Kempton

Has someone told you that you MUST practice yoga in the mornings or the evenings or when the moon is full or fill-in-the-blank? It’s simply not true. No hard and fast rules exist. The best time to practice is when you can step onto the mat!

In our busy lives, every day can be different and so you can adapt your practice based on your schedule. One of the greatest benefits of practicing yoga at home or on the road is you choose. There are advantages of practicing at different times. For example, Yoga Nidra first thing in the morning might make you so relaxed you want to stay in bed all day or an intense power class at 9 p.m. could make falling asleep a challenge.

Practicing yoga first thing in the morning is a great way to set a positive intention for your day, boost your metabolism and get energized, and ensures you’ll get your practice in before the busyness of your day takes over. Morning yoga can also help you start your day feeling focused and serene.

Some days it’s a challenge to squeeze in yoga. If your schedule doesn’t allow you time to practice before or after work, try taking a lunchtime yoga class. Midday is an ideal time to take a break to clear your mind and boost your energy levels. If you work behind a desk or on the computer, take the time to step away and stretch to counterbalance all the sitting.

Evening yoga is an ideal way to release the events of your day. An active Vinyasa class to sweat out your day and transition to a relaxing evening is great for tiring out your physical body. Classes at night are the perfect time for slower practices which can calm your busy mind. Restorative, yin, slow flow, gentle hatha, and Yoga Nidra are perfect for winding down and helping you sleep more deeply.

Check out this week’s classes. There’s a perfect one for whatever time of day works for you!
