If one makes it a habit to practice yoga at a stipulated time during the day then it becomes a habit which would result in continuity. Also, Yoga as a field is extremely broad with different asanas and routines providing varied results. Some routines are for burning fat while others are to calm the senses and the mind via meditation techniques.
