Many yogis have found that starting your day bright and early with some yoga has such amazing benefits, and you really don’t need to spend a lot of time doing it. Spending as little time as 20 minutes in the morning practicing yoga outside can bring about powerful boosts to your day. The first benefit that’s been found from early morning yoga practice is an increase in energy.

Taking your practice outside will bring a great boost of oxygen and air to your brain to give you that energy boost.
Aside from the incredible energy boost, practicing yoga can also give you a great sense of meditation and calming to begin your day.
