    7 Reasons to Begin Your Day with Yoga Class

    We’ve all had that horrible feeling of waking up first thing in the morning to our alarm sounding and a million things running through your head. Before you even have a chance to wake up, you’re rushing out the door to start your day. If this sounds familiar, perhaps it’s time to start your day differently with regular yoga practice. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of going along for some morning yoga.

    1. Sets the tone for the day

    Starting the day with yoga can help set a positive tone for the rest of the day and influences your state of mind. If you walk away from your yoga class feeling energised, calm and balanced, you’re off the best start possible.

    2. Calming effect on the nervous system

    If you start the day feeling stressed, yoga is the perfect solution, yoga for Beginners is the perfect antidote. It will help you tap into your parasympathetic nervous system and restore your body to a state of calm. It also helps to boost digestion which will stand you in good stead for the rest of the day.

    3. Helps with mental clarity

    Starting your day feeling that familiar brain fog can make it very difficult to concentrate. Yoga is well known for its ability to boost mental clarity and the focus on breath means that plenty of oxygen is making its way to your brain.

    4. Gets the body moving

    If you feel a little sluggish in the morning, you’re not alone and it can take a lot of us a long time to get our bodies moving. Morning yoga will get your joints warmed up, get the blood flowing and your body ready for the day.

    5. Boosts the immune system

    Your morning yoga will help get your blood moving and wake up the lymphatic system. This positive early morning movement can give your immune system a boost and allows your white blood cells to do their job more effectively.

    6. Important self-care

    Morning yoga practice means that you’re doing something for yourself as soon as wake up in the morning. In an age where self-care often gets put on the backburner, yoga gives you the opportunity to do something positive for your mind and body.

    7. Embrace the mornings

    If you’ve never been a morning person, getting into the habit of early yoga practice can help you welcome the day in a calm and positive way. You might be surprised at how quickly you become used to the routine of getting up a little earlier to get on the mat.
