Yes Pat - it helps me wake up. It also helps me start the day in a calm state of mind and with a feeling of accomplishment, so I feel more able to deal with the day ahead. I've been able to extend my practice now to include other asanas as well.


Stephen, so did you find that doing a sun salutation in the morning helped you wake up? I suffer from insomnia and find I usually cannot awaken into my body for hours after I wake up. It sounds like something interesting to try.

Folks,Beauty is skin deep means to me,face is the index of mind.Many many years back,i used to be very stressed due to negative thoughts,lot of responsibilities & not enough money.I wished i could go to spa & get massage,get my hair done to llok prettier,nothing worked for me,untill,i staerted doing Tae-kwondo & yoga to get physically tired & mentally relaxed with Pranayama & Asana practice.Fancy spas are wonderful,But those are temporary,sleep good,do some physical exercise,negative thoughts disappear & natual glow calms your mind & reflection of peace brings the joy of life,you feel connected with your self & hence love comes in the heart & connect you through your loving soft eyes with others, Blessings, veena.
