You may be wondering how to develop a morning yoga practice if you aren’t a morning person. But your favorite Two Fit Moms—Laura Kasperzak and Masumi Goldman—say it's possible, even for night owls.
"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.
