"Rather than setting your alarm clock 90 minutes earlier than usual, start by taking baby steps," they suggest. "Perhaps a 5:30 a.m. wake-up time will never fit your lifestyle, but a 6:30 a.m. wake-up time may be palatable and sustainable. Even 30 minutes is enough time to set a daily intention, take a few deep breaths, stretch the body, raise the heart rate, and start each morning feeling peaceful and accomplished."
After a few rounds of Sun Salutations, perform this core-strengthening Good Morning Flow to really fire up the leg muscles, stretch the body, and break a sweat in a short period of time. Once you are familiar with each of the poses and can hold each pose for 5 full breaths, repeat the sequence at a faster pace. Remember to repeat the sequence on both sides of the body.
