Remember, that’s important and time is relevant if you live in cities. Early morning at 4 AM or 5 AM you can get fresh air because there is less air pollution and as sunrises, at 6 AM or 7 AM, the pollution level tends to increase. So try to do this simple Yoga exercise as early as possible, but again that depends on your daily schedule.
