To really understand what a good morning practice is, you just need to start doing it every day, and then inspire others with your inner state, ”said Anna Lunegova, AnySports coach, leading jivamukti yoga teacher in Russia.
At the same time, morning yoga for beginners should not be excessively heavy and intense. All asanas should be performed at a convenient pace, constantly listening to yourself. You need to do it first of all for pleasure and well-being: only then the morning yoga complex will become a familiar ritual, without which you will not want to start your day.
