Learn Yoga Techniques to Treat or Ease Insomnia
If you have trouble sleeping at night, incorporating yoga into your life can help, especially if your insomnia is related to stress. Yoga has proven to be a great stress buster and can offer relaxation techniques, including breathing exercises and meditation.
How Yoga Can Help
While there is no specific posture that automatically leads to deep sleep, yoga can be an effective sleep aid as part of a healthy lifestyle. To do this, it is a good idea to establish a regular yoga practice, even if it is only a few poses a day. Stretching your body regularly helps release tension.
Yoga can help treat or alleviate insomnia, helping you relax before bed and minimize stress. This encourages you to tune into the present moment, allowing you to stop worrying about things that happened in the past or could happen in the future.
If you've never done yoga before, use this guide to get started.
Yoga in your ritual at bedtime
Sleep experts often point to the effectiveness of creating a standard nighttime routine to signal your body that it's time to get ready for bed. You may choose to include some gentle breathing or stretching exercises in your ritual to relieve tension and help you relax.
The three-part breathing, which is very helpful in clearing the clutter of the day, is a good option at bedtime.
Yoga poses to do in bed
Yoga poses that can be done lying in bed include:
Happy baby (ananda balasana)
Reclining goddess pose (supta baddha konasana)
Legs on the wall (viparita karani)
Corpse pose (savasana)
Even if you are lying in bed, you can do happy baby poses (ananda balasana), which release your lower back and hips, leaving you more relaxed and relaxed.
The goddess pose (supta baddha konasana), which opens the groin, is another good option, as is the straight legs (viparita karani).
The corpse pose (savasana) ends all yoga classes and is also a good way to end the day. Lying on the bed, focus on each part of your body and soften them up before continuing. Start with your toes, work your way up your legs and arms, work your way up your torso to your neck, face, and head.
Yoga Nidra can also be incorporated into bed, as it is a deep relaxation methodology that can be particularly helpful for people who have trouble sleeping.
Then take a few minutes to breathe. If you find your mind wandering during this time, don't get caught up in your thoughts; instead, direct your attention to your breathing. This helps create a rest in your active mind and allows you to relax and sleep.
