Morning Yoga Routine To Awaken and Energize

Yoga practice is great at any time of the day, but I do love to begin each new day with an energizing routine to help awaken the body and mind.

The above video is a routine that you can try at the start of your day too. It is not guided so you may wish to watch it once first to get a feel of the postures (asanas) involved.

The practice begins with a few rounds of sun salutations to warm up the body and increase the heart rate, before moving on to the main asana part.

It was my intention originally to add narration, however I am currently experiencing some microphone issues! Since it’s the first ever yoga video I have made any feedback will be more than welcome. Please feel free to comment below.  If you would really prefer some narration over the video then let me know, and I’ll find away to resolve the microphone issue. 🙂
