Sweat, Stretch Out, and Get Energized With 7 Wake-Me-Up Yoga Practices For Mornings
I'm trying (and mostly failing, but trying!) to make morning yoga a part of my daily routine. It's not just that it refreshes my body and relaxes me, head to toe, before the day starts; I've also noticed that I'm more focussed throughout the day, hours after the practice is over. Quietly embracing the slight discomfort of some positions and moving mindfully from pose to pose is meditative, connecting my mind to the task at hand in a way that filters through the rest of my day.
While some mornings I like to focus on one muscle group or area of tightness, other times, I just want to fully embrace that feeling of looseness, connection, and concentration. The best thing I've found for that? Yoga flows designed for the morning, to wake you up and get you moving. Luckily for an at-home yogi like me, there are plenty of those posted all over YouTube to help me stretch out and sink into that quiet headspace I crave. Ahead, check out seven of the best wake-you-up YouTube yoga flows I could find, created to help you welcome the new day feeling relaxed and energized.
