Awesome Yoga Poses To Practice In The Morning
Updated: Jan 23
Once you make practicing yoga in the morning a habit, your body becomes accustomed to getting up at the same time each day. This means you will awake feeling more energized and alert. While practicing yoga, the attention to breathing, meditation, and Asana has a positive effect on the endocrine system, which is responsible for long-term body maintenance. The endocrine system uses glands and hormones, to help keep you balanced.The poses I’ve chosen are perhaps not overly traditional (my list is missing most of the classical floor postures), but I like to adapt my practice to suit my modern day lifestyle.before doing this look some benefits:-
*Early Morning Yoga Helps to Build a Healthy, Consistent Routine
*Early morning yoga may boost your metabolism
*Morning stretching prevents injury and achiness throughout the day
#1-Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations)
Surya Namaskar, Salute to the Sun or Sun Salutation, is a practice in yoga as exercise incorporating a sequence of some twelve gracefully linked asanas. The asana sequence originated in the Hatha Yoga tradition on 9th century in India.
#2-Utkatasana (Chair Pose)
It’s most commonly called Chair Pose, which kinda suggests something comfortable and relaxing. Personally, I think it’s more appropriate to use one Utkatasana’s other translations, Thunderbolt, Fierce Pose or Awkward Pose.
Call it what you will, Utkatasana is an amazing way to generate heat in the body and quickly build energy. It activates the core and the legs and challenges your mind to stay present and positive, all great benefits for a morning practice.
#3- Anjaneyasana (Low Lunge)
Anjaneyasana is like a bubble bath for my hip flexors. You get that lovely open stretchy feeling through the hips, arms and torso, and it also builds strength in the legs.
A really nice morning variation is to interlace the fingers behind the lower back and gently drawing the hands away to open the chest and heart space.
#4- Trikonasana (Triangle Pose)
One of the classic yoga asanas, Trikonasana helps to give you a strong sense of grounding and stability through activating and balancing the root chakra, Muladhara. It powers up the legs and core, and the subtle twist allows you to open and light up the heart space. Beautiful.
#5-Virabhadrasana III (Warrior 3)
It activates the legs, the core and fires up Manipura, the solar plexus chakra encouraging feelings of confidence, determination and willpower.
Of course those qualities are awesome at any time of the day, but a dose in the morning means we can approach our work and daily activities with a true sense of inner strength.
#6- Natarajasana (Dancer Pose)
Natarajasana, Lord of the Dance Pose or Dancer Pose is a standing, balancing, back-bending asana in modern yoga as exercise. It is derived from a pose in the classical Indian dance form Bharatnatyam, which is depicted in temple statues in the Nataraja Temple, Chidambaram.
#7- Prasarita Padottanasana (Wide Leg Forward Fold)
The wide-legged forward bend or Prasarita Padottanasana (Prah-sah-REET-ah- Pah-doh-tahn-AA-SUN-aa) is like an energised version of yoga. It helps in increasing blood circulation to the brain while stretching the legs, arms and back of a person. The name of this yoga asana comes from the Sanskrit language. Prasarita means outstretched, pada means foot, ut means intense, tan means stretch and asana means pose or a posture.
#8- Ardha Matsyendrasana (Half Lord of the Fishes Pose)
Ardha Matsyendrasana is one of the classic yoga asanas for a good reason. Like all twisting postures, it promotes a healthy spine. It also helps stimulate the internal organs, promoting healthy digestion and encouraging detoxification. Another pose to do before breakfast.
Whether you’ve got time for one pose, or all of these and more, finding a connection between your body, mind and breath is going to set you up for an amazing day.
Bhujangasana or Cobra Pose is a reclining back-bending asana in hatha yoga and modern yoga as exercise. It is commonly performed in a cycle of asanas in Surya Namaskar as an alternative to Urdhva Mukha Svanasana.
Prāṇāyāma is the practice of breath control in yoga. In modern yoga as exercise, it consists of synchronising the breath with movements between asanas, but is also a distinct breathing exercise on its own, usually practised after asanas.Reduce Stress, Gain Mental Clarity And Nourish Your Vitality With Pranayama Practices.
