These relaxing poses will cure your insomnia, will significantly improve your sleep and regulate breathing.
They activate the parasympathetic nervous system, help in combating stress and contribute to relaxation.
These three positions are suitable for everyone, even for those who have never practiced yoga. All you will need is your pillow. Ready? Before you start, inhale and exhale 10 times.
- Legs up the wall (Viparita Karani)
Lie back on the pillow, lift your legs up the ceiling so that the heels and knees are at the same level.
Keep your hands beside the body, palms facing up. In this way you regenerate energy that comes into the body along with breathing.
This position is ideal for those who spend a lot of time on their feet. It improves blood circulation. It is important to breathe deeply.
Stay in this position for 2-3 minutes. To exit the pose, slowly bend your knees and move them to one side.
This is a very useful exercise whose results can be felt immediately.
- Soles and knees together (Supta Baddha Konasana)
Lie back on the pillow. Put the soles together, moving the knees on different sides. Fully extend your arms along the body.
Stay in this position for 3 minutes. Do not forget to breathe deeply and evenly.
- Corpse Position (Savasana)
The last position, before you sink into a carefree sleep.
Stay lying on your back, legs outstretched at shoulder width, arms along the body, palms facing upwards (but not tight to the body).
Breathe freely and deeply, focus on your breathing. Let the thoughts naturally float, and you just observe from the side. Stay in this position for 3-5 minutes.
You are provided with a blissful dream. Just do not forget to remove the pillow from under your spine.
