Classes: New to early mornings at Manly Yoga

Trying to find the motivation to drag yourself out of bed earlier and make the most of the day?

We can't think of a better way than yoga to put you in a harmonious mindset to embrace the rest of the day.

And what better time to start a new habit as we move into day light savings and the new Spring term. 

 

Still need convincing?

Then read our blog article titled 7 Reasons to practise early morning yoga, it may just change your mind!

According to the ancient yogis, the most beneficial time of day to practise yoga and meditation is the early morning  the period they call brahmamuhurta. All is quiet, peaceful and “sattwic” (balanced). Everything brims with a positive, promising energy.

Our faithful Tuesday and Thursday 6am students report those days to be their best ones of the week and coming to an early class helps them maintain a healthy and fulfilling routine. If 6am is a little too early for you, we also have classes commencing at 7am and 7.30am.

Make the commitment to yourself now by booking here.
