This week we look at poses that help us sleep better. I'll be honest, I've never had any trouble sleeping. I know it seems like a humble brag, but I sleep hard. Since I was a kid, I've LOVED getting into bed and as soon as my head hits the pillow, I'm OUT. And, I usually don't bat a lash until morning when my alarm goes off. I know....I do not take this for granted and if I ever had a kid, I'm in for a rude awakening...no pun intended.
I was asked by Casper to feature my favorite poses for sleep. About a year ago I started doing 20 to 30 minutes of yin yoga before bed. It has made a huge difference in my practice. Flexibility is something I continually struggle with and stretching before bed has really helped. Here are some of my favorite resources for bedtime yoga:
Night Cap Pratice with Kathryn Budig Unfortunately, you have to be a YogaGlo subscriber to take advantage of this one. It's awesome. I use it ALL the time.
I love this pose...not much to it, just throw your legs up the wall and get your bum as close to the wall as possible.
This is my favorite thing ever right now. I'm still not fully back into my practice after having the plague...have been doing this one a lot lately. The more props the better.
