Never thought I say or think this:

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

Okay, I admit it.... all those people who say that AM exercise is good and maybe better than any other time of day are sooooooo right. I started doing a vigorous early AM (6:00)yoga practice in February. With a few misses and some changes for travel time, I have liked the early practice. Yesterday we returned from a great family visit early enough in the afternoon that I could go to the afternoon practice at my teacher's studio. He and I both agreed I had a dreadful practice full of aggression and ego.
This morning I got to practice shortly after 5:30. What a wonderful time of day to begin stretching and challenging your body with your mind and heart. As you might guess I had a wonderful practice, didn't feel drained as I had yesterday afternoon and know that AM exercise is, for me at least, the right thing to do. BTW, I AM NOT A MORNING PERSON!

    I use to be in the water at the pool by 6:05 am every time I went a few years ago. This past year that I rejoined, I am lucky if I am out of bed by 8 and even luckier if I am in the water by 9 or 9:30. The only difference I find is by the time I get home, my morning is gone.

    I like an early morning session because even if I never get to anything else constructive all day I at least have 20 minutes of yoga done and a meditation. Even if I am going to an evening class I do my morning practice. I find if I sleep late, I don't feel like I "have the time" and it is far more difficult to get myself in the groove. Early to bed . . .

    Oh man, I will try that when I am more brave. Not a morning person at all. emoticon

    This is encouraging... Yesterday I signed myself up for a twice weekly 630am spin/TRX strength class. Until Christmas. Yikes. I too am not a morning person but thought, well, a lifestyle change doesn't come without changing let's do this thing. Thanks for the encouragement.

    I wish I could give an early practice a try, but I start my commute at 4:45 am, so I go to an early evening class. For me, it's a fantastic way to unwind and let go of the day and whatever stressful hold it has on me.
