Early morning starts and yoga:
Wake numerous times in the night and immediately think of how early you have to get up. Each time calculate the hours/minutes until alarm goes off.
Spend last hour in bed convincing yourself not to go. Too tired/busy/niggling back pain/much better for everyone if you stay in bed.
Alarm goes off. Cut the bullshit, get up, dress and go to practice.
Get to studio, try not to make eye contact and lie down.
