Dincharya : My Concious Morning Yogic Routine

As the first rays of dawn gently caress the world, a profound sense of tranquility envelops me. As a yoga instructor, my morning routine is not just a series of tasks to check off but a sacred ritual that nourishes my mind, body, and spirit. In this blog post, I invite you to join me on a personal journey as I share the morning rituals that shape my days, cultivating a sense of inner peace, self-reflection, and holistic well-being.

1. Awakening at 5 am: Greeting the Day’s Potential

The world awakens as I rise at 5 am, embracing the stillness of the early hours. It is during this quiet time that I connect deeply with my spirituality and set the tone for the day ahead. Before anything else, I find solace in prayer, expressing gratitude for the gift of a new day and seeking guidance and blessings. This simple act of reverence allows me to tap into the profound potential that lies within each moment.

2. Hydration: Revitalizing the Body and Mind

The first physical act of self-care in my morning routine is to quench my body’s thirst. I reach for a tall glass of lukewarm water, savoring each sip as it refreshes and renews me from within. Hydrating my body at the start of the day not only aids digestion and metabolism but also serves as a gentle reminder to nurture myself, just as I do my students on their yoga mats.

3. Oil Pulling : A Ritual of Detoxification and Oral Health

One of the ancient Ayurvedic practices that has found its way into my morning routine is oil pulling. After splashing my face with cool water, I take a tablespoon of coconut oil and gently swish it in my mouth for 15-20 minutes. As I do this, I become aware of the rhythmic movement and the cleansing sensation that spreads throughout my oral cavity. It’s not just about promoting oral health but also about purifying my thoughts and preparing myself for the day ahead.

4. Toxin Elimination: Honoring the Body’s Natural Processes

After completing my oil pulling practice, I rinse my mouth thoroughly with water to remove any residual oil. I then reach for my toothbrush and apply a small amount of fluoride-free toothpaste. With gentle, circular motions, I cleanse each tooth, paying attention to the gumline and hard-to-reach areas.

As I stand before the bathroom mirror, I use this time as an opportunity to cultivate mindfulness. With each stroke of the toothbrush, I bring my attention to the present moment, savoring the act of self-care and expressing gratitude for the gift of oral health. This simple ritual serves as a reminder to treat my body with love and respect, embracing the interconnectedness of oral hygiene and overall wellness.

It is during these early hours that the digestive system is often most active. By listening to my body and honoring the call of nature, I facilitate the elimination of waste, promoting a healthy digestive system and overall well-being. It reminds me of the interconnectedness of our body and the importance of supporting its natural detoxification processes.

5. Yoga and Meditation : Cultivating Balance and Inner Harmony

As a yoga instructor, my personal yoga practice holds a special place in my heart. Unrolling my mat, I move through a series of asanas that stretch, strengthen, and awaken my body. Each movement is infused with mindful breath, allowing the energy to flow freely and harmoniously. After the physical practice, I settle into a seated meditation, bringing my awareness inward, observing the fluctuations of the mind, and finding moments of stillness amidst the chaos. This union of yoga and meditation grounds me, cultivating a sense of balance and calm that I carry throughout the day.

6. Shower and Morning Pooja: Cleansing and Invoking Blessings

A refreshing shower becomes a sacred ritual, cleansing not only my physical body but also symbolically washing away any lingering negativity or stress. As the water cascades over me, I visualize it purifying and revitalizing my entire being. Following the shower, I engage in morning Pooja rituals, honoring my spiritual practice by lighting incense, offering flowers, and connecting with the divine. This ritualistic act uplifts my spirit and infuses my day with blessings and positive energy.

7. Reading and Journaling: Nourishing the Mind and Soul

With a quiet mind and an open heart, I delve into the wisdom of written words. I choose a book that inspires me, whether it’s a spiritual text, a yoga philosophy book, or a personal development guide. As I immerse myself in the pages, I absorb knowledge, gain insights, and allow new perspectives to unfold. I then pick up my journal, pouring my thoughts, dreams, and aspirations onto the pages. This act of self-expression and reflection allows me to cultivate self-awareness, track my growth, and anchor myself in gratitude.

8. Teaching My First Yoga Class : Sharing the Gift of Yoga

As the world embraces digital connectivity, I find joy and purpose in sharing the gift of yoga through online classes. Guiding students through a virtual practice allows me to extend the reach of my teachings and connect with individuals from diverse backgrounds and corners of the world. Through the screen, I witness the transformative power of yoga unfold, as my students cultivate strength, find stillness, and discover their inner light.

9. Choose brunch over breakfast: Honoring the Body’s Wisdom

You must be thinking why I haven’t added breakfast in the list because in harmony with my body’s natural rhythms, I embrace intermittent fasting, choosing to delay my first meal until 12 pm. This intentional practice allows my body to experience a period of rest and rejuvenation, promoting cellular repair, hormonal balance, and mental clarity. Honoring the wisdom of my body, I embrace this practice as a reminder of the importance of mindful nourishment and self-awareness.

In my routine, I weave together a tapestry of rituals that nourish my mind, body, and spirit. By sharing my personal morning yogic journey, I hope to inspire you to create your own morning routine that aligns with your unique path and aspirations. Embrace the serenity of each morning, for it holds the potential for profound transformation and inner harmony.
