How to maximise the benefits of your morning yoga stretches
Dr Mulvihill says one of the best things you can do for your health is following a daily routine, which includes practising yoga at the same time and in the same place every day.
“Ayurveda says that a daily routine is absolutely necessary to bring about any desired change in the body or mind,” he says of the ancient system of medicine, which is closely related to yoga.
He also suggests adding essential oils to your meditation space and/or lighting candles if you practice in a darker room.
And if you really want to get in touch with how you feel pre- and post-yoga, jot down your feelings in a journal. With that, you’re off to a super strong start to your day.
