Early Morning Ashtanga Yoga
Practising Ashtanga or Hatha in the early morning on an empty stomach is the best time. Ayurveda, the ancient study of health in holistic relation to the seasons of life and body and the natural world identifies 1 hour before sunrise. The Ashtanga series I sequence (which I always modify to include all levels in a class) is a total cleansing for the body and mind, balancing both hemispheres of the brain and stretching and strengthening all the muscle groups, developing support for all joints by encouraging flexibility and correct postural alignment for the body. Breath work increases cardiovascular function, heart and lungs are strengthened and aids cleansing through maximum optimising of oxygen. The digestive track is stimulated and cleansed. All excretory systems are optimised leaving you feeling energised and relaxed. Mentally and physically this is a wonderful practice. I give a small head massage to all students at the end of each class. We warm up, work out and cool down in every class.
