Sleep Better With Yoga



Like everyone else, I have sleep disorders from time to time. It is easy to attribute this to a spiritual mechanism; feel like you are stressed, you are sad, you are busy with work, and you seem to be working all the time… Insomnia is having difficulty falling asleep and staying asleep. People with this type of disease cannot fall asleep in a short time, and even if they do, they cannot stay asleep because they cannot sleep deeply. While changing sleeping habits is generally good for insomnia, if there is another underlying disease, a doctor should be consulted. If I had to tell you a more innocent method; yoga

One reason why yoga is effective against insomnia is that it uses breathing techniques that help the body relax and calm the body. This is why breathing is so important in yoga: It nourishes the life force within us, thanks to the seven chakras (or energy points) located in our spinal cord. Chakras redistribute the energy received with each breath throughout the body. Yoga exercises reverse the bad effects and allow energy to flow freely through our bodies once again.

Holding the pose for 30 to 40 seconds can help you relax and relieve tension, and having a pre-sleep routine helps prepare the body for sleep by telling you when it is bedtime. Additionally, diaphragmatic breathing; It calms the entire nervous system such as digestion, respiratory, blood circulation and lymphatic system.

Yoga poses that make it easier to fall asleep:

1- Parivrtta janu sirsasana – Turning the spine and bringing the head to the knees

2- Marjarasana – Cat stretch

3- Ado Mukha Svanasana – Downward facing dog

4- Balasana – Child Pose

5- Plow pose

6- Supta Matsyendrasana – Spine twist pose

7- Savasana – Corpse Pose

If you add ‘Yoga Nidra’ to sleep, it will be great for your practice. It is said that this exercise, which puts the person in a state of consciousness between sleep and wakefulness and provides deep relaxation, has a high stress-reducing and calming effect.
