Yoga in the morning or evening?
I am not an experienced yoga practioner, although I am doing it for almost 7 months, daily. I still wanted to write my opinion about doing yoga in the morning vs evening.
People say do yoga, when you have time for it.
After all if you don't have 30 minutes daily, to take care of your body, then why do the hell do you live for?
Jocko Willink said that your health has to be a priority, so he does his workouts in the morning. He has a family, he is a busy man.
So combining this two thing, and taking into account that yoga can be 10, 20 or even 60 minutes…
I did yoga both in the morning and in the evening. Sometimes in the morning it felt like I only doing it to check it off. OK, I done yoga, check.
Then I moved it to evening, a few hours before bed time. At first I felt good, I had good sleep. But then I just realized that I went to bed on time anyway, so it wasn't connected.
Lately I am doing morning yoga again. My mind is clear in the afternoon, and I feel energized for the day. I don't have to think about it later, or feel the tiredness. Plus I feel that anything can come up during the day, and I already did may daily 20-30 minutes of yoga. It's such a good feeling, like I have a little bit more order in my life. Maybe it's because I am doing it for a few months now? I definitely feel more focused during and after it.
So yeah, I would say, make yoga (or any workout), a priority, and do it in the morning. Your health is very important. Others may depend on you, but even if not, you depend on yourself! Don't neglect your health! Trust me, saying this from experience, it's very important!
Everybody can do 15-30 minute, if anything go to bed early, so you can wake up early.
