There are as many answers to this question as there are teachers, but here are some benefits of practicing at different times of day:

Morning Practice
- Upon waking, muscles are not yet warmed up and the biggest benefit to connective tissue is possible.
- Starting the day with a positive action (like a yin yoga practice) can set the tone for the rest of the day. The duration of the practice matters less than the commitment to starting the day this way. 
- Practicing Yin Yoga in the morning lets one cross one “self care” agenda item off the list!

Mid-Day Practice
- If a student would like the opportunity to rest and reset during the day, a mid-day practice offers a nice “restart” and allows for a little mental rest.

Evening Practice
- For some students, practicing a mindfulness practice like Yin Yoga before bed helps the mind to settle and process the work of the day
- Preparing for bed can be a sacred practice and set the tone for a supportive and restful sleep
