3 Yoga Poses That Can (Will) Help You Sleep Better

I came across this article and had to share. As a yogi myself, I can attest to these poses actually working. I have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. So believe me, I have tried everything. These poses truly do work to help you relax and release tension. If you need help sleeping, or just want to relax your body- give these a try! Even if you aren't experienced in yoga, these are perfect for beginners or non-yogis!

1) Modified Goddess

While in bed, lie on your back and bring the bottoms of your feet together to touch, allowing your legs to fall to the sides in a diamond shape. Raise your arms above your head.  You can place a pillow under your head or shoulders for comfort. Hold for about 12 breaths. Take deep, calming breathes- releasing tension with each exhale.

2) Spinal Twist (my favorite)

Still on your back, straighten both legs and stretch your arms out to the side, palms up. Bend your right knee so your foot is flat on the mattress. Then draw the bent leg across your body and use the opposite hand to apply light pressure to the top of the thigh. Gently turn your head to your open palm and hold for ten to 12 breaths. Repeat on the other side.

3) Upside-Down Relaxation

Form an L shape with your body by lying flat on your back and placing your legs against the wall at the head of your bed or headboard. Your arms can either be stretched above your head or crossed on your chest. Slowly inhale and exhale for a few minutes. This practice is extremely restorative and relaxing.
