Are you one of those cheery morning people who get out of bed as the sun rises? Getting up early in the morning is tough. Research shows that it is more common in people to have a heart attack in early part of the day, party because of going from zero to full speed work without doing any warm ups.
J. J. Gormley who is the director of the Sun & Moon Yoga Studios in Arlington, VA, designed a morning yoga routine to help get relaxed, focus, and energized. “We stifle our natural tendency to stretch and yawn because the alarm goes off and reminds us we have an agenda,”
Start with slowly inhaling and exhaling the fresh morning air for a minute or two. Then breathe and relax and don’t try to push yourself too hard.
