How Yoga May Help You Sleep Better

Having trouble sleeping? You’re not alone, lack of sleep feeds into the stress cycle by affecting your memory, judgment, and mood, making you much more susceptible to feeling stressed. Not only are you more susceptible to stress, but lack of sleep lowers the threshold at which you perceive stress, meaning you’re likely to interpret the same situation as more stressful if you’ve had a late night versus when you’re well-rested.

But don’t despair, a good night’s sleep really is within reach and incorporating yoga into your life can help. Yoga has proven to be a great stress buster and can offer you relaxation techniques, including breathing exercises and meditation. 

HOW YOGA HELPS YOU SLEEP

Restorative is a type of yoga that’s perfect for the evenings and it promotes deeper sleep. It is a gentle and slow style of yoga that involves long, passive holds in a series of 4-6 restful poses. The postures are held for some minutes and encouraging you to let your body relax, aided by the support of bolsters, blankets and pillows.

Practicing restorative yoga before you go to bed can help you get a more restful night’s sleep. A good night’s sleep will promote refreshed energy in your day-to-day!
