Is Yoga More Effective In The Morning?

It’s true, there are poses that aid shedding those extra pounds. But is there an ideal time of day to perform Yoga? The answer lies in how your body reacts to the practice. Yoga practiced at any time during the day or night can produce the same benefits. While there may be some truth to the level of effectiveness of the yoga being performed (if you are tired, you probably will not get the most out of the practice), as long as you practice the asanas designed to help you lose weight, you will see results.
The following article reveals some common poses for losing weight. These poses can be performed whenever you like and should be performed at least 3 times a week for the best results.
