Generally the best time to practise Yoga is early morning or at sunset time. But any time is better rather than doing nothing. So even you can do it after your household work. Take care that you eat before two hours which will make your blood sugar low and will use the fat stores efficiently which will also help to reduce weight.

Mornings are generally preferred as it will be a good start for the day, will become a routine and that you do not skip due to lack of time with other chores. So try to stick to a routine with the same time which is very important.

Evenings are advised for persons with stiff muscles which will ease and be more flexible in the evening.

Backward bendings or exercises which stimulate or invigorate can be avoided which may cause difficulty to get sleep, but it varies in each person. Forward bending exercises are generally calming. Including bending, standing , balancing exercises, inverted poses which are good. Always try to finish with Shavasana. Try to rest in between and do not overstrain.

It will not be a miracle and do it patiently and slowly with a good diet also which is important to reduce weight.
