Energizing Morning Yoga Practice

Happy Tuesday, everyone! As you’ve probably figured out, Tuesdays mean yoga on my blog. Today I’m sharing a relatively (about 20 minutes) short video that has an energizing morning yoga practice to awaken and focus your body and mind. I’m particularly excited because the practice starts with Nadi Shodhana, alternate nostril breathing. It’s a pranayama technique I really love and I feel it’s under represented in yoga classes, both online and in studio, as it were.

If you’re not familiar with alternate nostril breathing, getting your hand into the right shape may be a bit of a brain teaser at first! I’m confident you’ll catch on, though, and that you’ll love the technique. If you don’t have time to a more in-depth yoga practice, a few rounds of Nadi Shodhana is a fantastic way to balance and energize yourself. Not sure what it is? Watch and find out!

As always, I really appreciate comments letting me know what types of videos you’d like to see next!

    Fantastic! I always loved the alternate nostril breathing techniques, and it really is under utilized in most classes. Your videos are great.

      Thank you! I’ve been thinking about doing a yoga philosophy vlog soon instead of an asana practice. I feel like it’s under utilized in most classes, too.

    Thanks for sharing the energizing morning yoga! I can definitely use this as the days get shorter and I seem to be less energized. I’m familiar with the breathing technique from my Ayurveda course! It does take getting used to 🙂

      Energy has been difficult to come by in this week’s gloom! I find that a few minutes of yoga in the morning really help me wake up, even in the cloudy rainy weather we’ve had lately. Even here it’s amazing how much earlier the sunset has become in just a few weeks – I imagine it’s even more pronounced for you.
