Enhancing Sleep Quality With Yoga

Breathe in, breathe out and remove all the doubts! As it is clearly and correctly said,

“The soul always knows what to do to heal itself.

The challenge is to silence the mind.”

Yoga isn’t just about striking a pose and uploading it on the internet; it’s about embracing the holistic benefits of this ancient Indian practice for both mind and body. It is a secret to boost your flexibility and strength along with experiencing quality sleep. Whether it is the deep relaxation of Yoga Nidra or the calming effects of refreshing poses, yoga gives you the perfect introduction to a restful, deep sleep. Let’s dive into the world of yoga and explore how it can make your nights peaceful and your days energetic.

Yoga Poses for Better Sleep

Counting sheep won’t do much for your sleep, but a relaxing yoga routine might just end your day on a relaxing note. These poses aren’t just average stretches but they calm your nervous system, improve your breathing, reduce fatigue and so on. A refreshing yoga routine can definitely relax your body and mind and help you sleep even before you know. 

Child's Pose (Balasana): This gentle position relaxes the nervous system while stretching the back and hips. Kneel on the floor, then sit back on your heels with your face resting on the mat.

Legs Up the Wall (Viparita Karani): This healing pose eases leg fatigue, increases relaxation, and improves blood circulation. With your legs straight up the wall, lie on your back.

Supported Fish Pose (Matsyasana): The more you stretch your back, the more your chest and neck open, allowing you to breathe deeper and relax. Lie on your back, place a bolster or pillow under your upper back, and let your head slowly fall back.

Corpse Pose (Savasana): Finally comes the most loved pose, Corpse pose. This is the final resting pose that let’s your mind and body relax completely. Lie flat on your back with your arms at your sides and palms facing up. Close your eyes and focus on your breath.

Yoga Nidra for Deep Relaxation

Yoga Nidra, also referred to as yogic sleep, is a type of guided meditation that creates a very relaxed, sleep-like condition. It's intended to reduce stress and enhance the quality of sleep, not to replace regular sleep. Here's a simplified approach to Yoga Nidra: 

  1. Find a comfortable position: Lie down on your back in a quiet and distraction-free space.

  2. Set an intention: Silently set an intention for your Yoga Nidra practice, for example, "I will release stress and prepare for a restful sleep."

  3. Body scan: Focus on different parts of your body, starting from your toes and gradually moving upwards.

  4. Focus on your breath: Shift your focus to your breath, observing the natural rhythm of your inhalation and exhalation.

  5. Visualization: Use calming visualizations to promote relaxation. Imagine yourself in a peaceful place, surrounded by serenity.

  6. Rest and regain: Remain in this state of deep relaxation for 5-10 minutes. When you're ready, gently wiggle your fingers and toes and slowly come back to full awareness.

Flo Mattresses and Yoga: The Perfect Combo for Quality Sleep

Yoga and a good mattress are a match made in heaven when it comes to achieving quality sleep. Just as yoga offers relaxation and helps you maintain a good posture with different poses, a comfortable mattress provides optimal support to your body and enhances these benefits.
