Sleep better with Yoga

23rd March 2016

It is not only night owls and insomniacs that can do with better sleep, even the best slumberers can benefit from some gentle yoga before bedtime, which will help you wake up more rested and refreshed in the morning.

Improves Quality of Sleep

Yoga has a stimulatory effect on the nervous system, in particular, the brain, and this improves the quality of sleep. Yoga also increases blood circulation, and certain poses increase the blood circulation to the sleep centre in the brain. This can aid in normalising your sleep cycle.

Helps the body Rejuvenate

By practicing deep yoga breathing, you can also assist your organs in the detoxification process. The practice of breathing allows for more oxygen in the body and rejuvenates the body on a cellular level. This, in turn, escalates the quality of your sleep which means you’ll be less likely to hit the snooze button in the morning.

Physical and Psychological

Researchers of insomniac patients aimed at reducing arousal found that participants had significantly improved sleep efficiency at the end of the yoga treatment compared with before the treatment. Yoga is an effective treatment because it addresses insomnia’s physical and psychological aspects.

So before you reach for that bottle of pills, take a look at this short video and start implementing a yoga routine before bedtime every evening.
