6 Types of Yoga to Practice in the Morning

Yoga in the morning is amazing! After 7-8 hours (hopefully) of shut-eye, our body responds affectionately to movement, and our mind is clear and receptive to positive ideas and messages. Our breath is ready for us to deepen and expand its potency, and our energy is just waiting to be stirred up after a long siesta. There are countless asanas and awesome yoga poses that all have amazing benefits. Daily yoga in the morning is really very beneficial.

Types of Yoga to practice in Morning:-

1. Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations)

2.  Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog)

3. Anjaneyasana (Low Lunge)

4. Trikonasana (Triangle Pose)

5. Natarajasana (Dancer Pose)

6. Utkatasana (Chair Pose)

 

1.  Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations)

There are several variations to this sequence of postures known as a salute to the sun. They’re traditionally practiced as the sun is rising, and whichever version of Surya Namaskar you practice, they’re a great way to warm up and start to sync the movement of the body with the flow of the breath. As they work all of the 7 major chakras, they’ll help you light up energetically and the rhythmic movement can help create a sense of inner calm.

2.  Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward-Facing Dog)

If you only have time for one in the morning, I’d make it this one. The whole body’s involved so it’s a great way to wake up every part of your physique. That beautiful stretch through the backs of the legs and hips just feels incredible. It’s little wonder our canine friends do this one naturally when they wake up…

3.  Anjaneyasana (Low Lunge)

   I’ve got a problematic psoas muscle that likes to grip and shorten any chance it can get, so 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)

 Trikonasana is a standing yoga posture that requires strength, balance, and flexibility. In this posture, both arms extend with the legs spread apart and one foot turned at a 90-degree angle. The upper body bends toward the lead foot so that one arm reaches toward, but not necessarily touching, the ground and the other toward the sky. The term comes from the Sanskrit trikona, meaning “three corners” or “triangle,” and asana, meaning “posture.”

In addition to a range of physical benefits, trikonasana is believed to unblock energy pathways in the body. It is one of the basic poses common to the many styles of yoga.

5. Natarajasana (Dancer Pose)

Ah, an opportunity to find a few moments of grace on the mat. I’ve added it to the list for two reasons. Firstly, the backbend opens the heart space and creates a surge of beautiful energy and secondly, because it’s a balance it encourages equilibrium in both the body and the mind.

6. 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.
