Stretches for improved sleep

We could all use a little more sleep, right?


Below is a yin yoga stretching routine to help prepare for a good nights rest using forward folds, breathe work and simple reclined poses to help calm the nerves and unwind after a long day

Start with a seated meditation


Followed by alternative nostril breathing


Next butterfly (Feet touching)


Half butterfly (straighten one leg)


Caterpillar (Two legs straight with forward fold)


Then into a Swan pose


Reclined butterfly (Lay on your back)


Legs up the wall (Lay on back, legs rest on the wall)


Lastly Corpse pose (Lay down on your back)

Take 1-5 mins in each pose ending in corpse pose for a longer amount of time

Allow gravity to relax your body while in each pose

Try this out & let me know how you sleep
