Post Work, Evening And Night Yoga Classes For The Forever Busy

Ten-Second Takeaway

After a long day at work, a yoga session could sound counterproductive but we beg to differ. Practicing pranayams and asanas in the evenings has its benefits by letting you cool down from the day’s drudgery and getting you into a calm zone to enjoy the evening and a restful slumber. At the end of the day, yoga can be practised anytime as long as timings are regular to reap the benefits of this ancient science.
