    Yoga AND gym on the same day

    Hello!

    I have recently fallen in love with yoga (ashtanga to be specific), but gym is still life.

    The yoga class that I enjoy going to is a mysore class that takes place every morning 6 AM to 9 AM (I usually go from 7.30 or 8 to 9).
    Can I safely do the yoga and then later in the day do a proper gym workout ?

    I basically want the whole cake, is it at all possible to have it?
    Thank you.

    Yoga is awesome, just got out of it and my body is getting stiffed. I wanna get back into yoga for the flexibility.

    Well, if the goal is to gain strength than I wouldn't recommend it in the long run. It will help at first because your joints will strengthen, as well as simply isometric moments burn calories. But, if you want to lift weights, in the long run yoga before lifting well cause weakness, leading to over training, injury, or simply not as effective as you could be in the main objective, depending on what that may be.

    I don't see why not. If it starts impacting your workouts you may need to reassess and change the schedule based on which ever you prioritize.

    Idk what yoga you're doing, but the average yoga class is not going to tax your body to the point where adding a workout could lead to overtraining

    Thank you for the answers!

    I think I'll start by doing 1-1,5 hour yoga session between 7 and 9 AM, and then hit the gym at around 5-7 PM, and see how my body reacts to this.
