MOST of us have to get up early morning to go to school, college or offices making it a big task to get up in the morning afresh and start the day. Morning is the time of the day which sets our mood for the whole day. If you're someone who relies on tea or coffee to stay active throughout the day, you should skip those morning coffee sessions and indulge yourself in yoga. Yoga in the morning is amazing for an individual's health.

Implanting the regular practice of yoga is considered a healthy lifestyle habit for the body and mind. However, morning yoga can be especially beneficial. Practising yoga in the morning recycles our first breath which has the potential to create, live and enjoy throughout the day. It helps in warming up the body and channelises our vibrations.
