Yoga traditionally has been practised in the early morning, there are benefits of morning yoga as the five senses keep collecting information in the form of images, voices, smells, tastes, and touches throughout the day.
In the early mornings one can experience in the absence of mind, or emptiness of mind which means the union of body and soul in absence of mind or inflow of collected information as mental blocks, helps to connect and experience better, one within themselves, while in the early mornings there is pure oxygen (O2) and less pollution it creates an ideal platform to gain a better understanding, consciousness, and awareness to bring the divinity in all aspects of life.
If once we see yoga from a wide-angle it will be difficult to say morning yoga or evening yoga. Because nowadays people have vast changes in their lifestyles and day to day work, which might be a barrier for morning yoga but still evening yoga has its benefits.
By evening the body cells & muscles become loose and soft which can be an add-on to enhance and deepen the practice. One starts becoming energetic, stress gets reduced, experiences grounding, improvement of sleep etc. after an exhausting day. This might be a better way to say evening yoga works as a tablet, but morning yoga makes you free from taking any tablets.
However, morning and evening yoga both have their pros and cons which depends on one's lifestyle, work conditions and individual requirements. Yoga can be practised due to different intentions such as physical improvements, peace of mind, the growth of consciousness or spiritual developments.
Ultimately doing is the key and eventually one will be clear if evening or morning which works out well.
