5 Yoga Poses to Help You Sleep Better

Yoga is the beautiful art of Hindu spiritual and ascetic discipline. This discipline includes meditation, breath control, and the adoption of specific body postures. People use this technique for health and relaxation purposes in everyday life.

If you usually do not get a good sleep in the night, there are chances that you might be aging faster than you should. And you do not exactly feel at the top of the world, and your thinking would be confused, muddled.

Sleeplessness also increases the risk of serious health problems such as diabetes and stroke, as well as depression, impaired judgment, memory lapses and other cognitive deficiencies. There are some easy yoga-based techniques you can use nightly to fall asleep and stay asleep. So here are 5 simple Yoga Poses to Help You Sleep Better

1. Paschimottanasana
Paschimottanasana or Seated Forward Bend or Intense Dorsal Stretch is an asana that gives lots of benefits. It helps people with diabetes and family history of diabetes. It helps the liver and spleen to function properly. Also strengthens the lumbar and sacral regions. It curbs excessive appetite and builds appetite if you suffer from lack of it, thus balances your metabolism.

2. Viparita Karani
The Viparita Karani is a mild inversion and is also called the Inverted Lake Pose. Viparita Karani is known to diminish wrinkles and it can make you look younger. This posture will make your blood flow into various parts of your body that requires it. Viparita Karani is often done at the end of a yoga practice, before the final relaxation pose (Savasana) or meditation.

3. Supta Baddha Konasana
Reclined Bound Angle Pose, also known as Reclined Cobbler’s Pose, is a deeply relaxing yoga position that is recommended for students of all levels. This pose instills a sense of deep relaxation. It is not only a restorative posture but also a hip opening asana. It is a basic pose, which just about anyone can try their hand at. This asana is also called the Reclined Cobbler’s Pose or the Reclined Goddess Pose.

4. Lizard Pose
Lizard Pose (Utthan Pristhasana) is a great stretch for the hip flexors, the hamstrings, and the quadriceps. Incorporating Lizard into your yoga practice can help to improve the flexibility of your hip ligaments and strengthen the muscles in your legs.

5. Ardha Matsyendrasana
Ardha Matsyendrasana usually appears as a seated spinal twist with many variations, and is one of the twelve basic asanas in many systems of Hatha Yoga. This is one of the few poses in the Basic Session that rotates the spine. Most bend the spinal column either backward or forward, but to become truly flexible it must be twisted laterally as well. The movement also tones the spinal nerves and ligaments, and improves the digestion.
