Yoga Time For Working Women

by Alifya
(Dubai)

I am non vegetarian and I am a working woman and I am really very interested in doing yoga. I have my food by 1:30 pm. I want to do yoga by 3:30 PM with 2 hour gap after lunch. Is it ok? As I have to take tuitions at 5:00 PM, I do not have time. Please advise about the suitable timing to do yoga.



Answer
You interest for doing yoga is appreciable and I am sure with your determination you can practice yoga regularly.

If you want to do yoga after lunch, two hour gap will not be enough especially if you eat non vegetarian or spicy food. Here are some of the options:

1. Eat your lunch by 1 PM. For lunch, eat more of salads and vegetables and eat less portions. In this way, the lunch gets digested easily and you can do one hour yoga from 4 PM to 5 PM.

2. Better option is to sleep early and do one hour of yoga in the morning. It can be difficult but if you can manage to get up early for yoga it will be most beneficial. Also, you will not have to worry about missing your yoga practice due to whatever reasons. In addition, mind and body are relaxed in the morning and this time is ideal for yoga practice.

3. Or you can do some asanas in the morning and some asanas in the afternoon at 4 PM.

You can try to make changes as per your daily routine. Remember that you must not be too tired and stomach should be empty before doing yoga.

Hope this helps.

Warm regards
Daljit
