So many people in the modern world suffer from insomnia or poor sleep quality. Our minds race all day long, we use screens right up until the moment we try to fall asleep…and then we can’t!
A simple yoga routine can be very effective in preparing the body for deep, restful sleep and even a short practice before bed can be really helpful. I've created a simple routine of just four postures that will help you to unplug and unwind, calming the body and the mind ready for a good nights sleep.
By focussing on deep breathing to calm your mind and release physical tension, this combination of breath and movement activates your parasympathetic nervous system, which helps counteract stress and aids deep relaxation.
