Having trouble unwinding for bedtime? Because busy days can lead into busy nights, it’s helpful to carve out a few minutes each evening to prepare your body and mind for sleep. We love this simple 8-pose yoga sequence that will poise you for better rest.
To sleep better with yoga, start tonight! Set up a yoga mat, or use an area rug in a quiet, serene space where you can safely pose. Avoid distractions, technology, and outside stimulation, and begin the sequence. While it may feel like your body is doing all of the relaxing, try to clear your mind to prep for a peaceful night’s sleep. Sweet dreams!
Every body bends differently. Gently modify the depth or intensity of a pose to make it comfortable for you. To avoid injury, do not over-extend the poses and discontinue if you feel pain.
