    When should you do this pose?

    Although the best time to do this pose is early in the morning daily but since getting up early in the morning and doing yoga is not possible with such a tight schedule, you can do this pose in the evenings too. However, do make sure to have 4 to 6 hours of gap after your last meal. Why even evening would work? Because that is the time when you would want to calm yourself, and this is the best yoga pose to have tranquility within minutes.
