Yoga Poses to Aid Falling Asleep

If you are having difficulties falling asleep at night, practising a few yoga postures as demonstrated in this video can help you relax and unwind.

My personal favourite is the last pose – legs-up-the-wall. Practising this will gently increase the blood circulation towards the upper body and head, which can create a nice balance if you have been standing or sitting for a long time. It is also beneficial if you are stressed, fatigued, or jet-lagged.

Precautions : Avoid legs-up-the-wall pose if you suffer from hypertension (high blood pressure), glaucoma or hernia.

 

~Namaste~
