  1. The amount of fresh oxygen at sea level is more and pure in the morning and whatever asanas we do, we do with breathing control. Thus, we can inhale pure and maximum amount of oxygen which helps in the purification of the internal organs. Hence, morning is recommended as best time for Yoga and Meditation.
