If you have trouble falling asleep and I could not relax properly, these relaxing positions will help you fight insomnia, significantly improve sleep and regulate breathing. They activate the parasympathetic nervous system, helping to break the stress and contribute to relaxation.
These three yoga positions suit everyone, whether you’ve ever practiced yoga or not, but you should do them at night, before going to bed.
Their performance will not require any strength and energy. All you need is a big cushion, and before you start, take a deep breath and breathe out 10 times.
1. Legs on the wall (Viparita carats)
Lie on your back with a pillow placed under you and lift your legs straight at the ceiling, placed on the wall, so that your knees and feet are in the same line. Set your arms beside the body, and turn your hands upward. This way you get a regenerative energy that comes into our body with breathing.
This position, which improves blood circulation, is ideal for those who spend a great deal of time on their feet. It is important to breathe deeply and stay in this position for 2-3 minutes. Then slowly bend your knees and transfer them to one side. This is also a useful exercise whose results will feel immediately.
2. Feet merged, and knees separated (Supta Badha KONAS)
Lie on your back with a pillow. Assemble your feet together, knees moving in different directions, and extend the arms along the body. Stay in this position for 3 minutes. Remember to breathe deeply and evenly.
3. Position of a dead man (Savasana)
The last position is made prior to falling in an easy and deep sleep. Keep lying on your back with your legs stretched as wide as your shoulders, and your arms spread beside your body, with hands facing upwards.
Breathe freely and deeply and focus on breathing. Let them think themselves floating, and you observe by. Stay in this position for 3-5 minutes.
This will provide you peaceful sleep, just remember to remove the pillow from under you.
