with regards to a daily practice regimine, the phrase “anytime is a good time” definitely applies; however, if time and mind-body response does allow for it, ‘brahmamuhurta’ (the morning period between 3.30 a.m. and 5.30 a.m.) has been shown to be the best-suited “time block” for meditation – and yoga is a dynamic form of this peaceful, inward-looking state. After a good night’s sleep, the mind is refreshed, calm and serene. There is a preponderance of purity in the mind at this time, as well as in the atmosphere that surrounds the practitioner and their abode. It is during this period that the mind is like a blank sheet of paper, free from worldly impressions – the mental chit-chatter has not yet deeply entered into the brainwave frequencies. As such, the mind can be moulded easily and directed into stillness; therefore, you want to begin your day with divine, clear thoughts – ‘as within, so without!’.
