Restorative yoga can help prepare your body and mind so that you can fall asleep easily and sleep deeply. When we practice restorative yoga at bedtime, we are teaching our mind and body how to rest. Slowing down the body as we do in restorative yoga signals the parasympathetic nervous system, which favours sleep. Many times sleep eludes us because we do not slow the body down enough to enter the relaxed alpha brainwave states that precede sleep. When we practice restorative yoga we reduce cortisol levels, lowering stress, which allows your body to move into relaxation and then sleep. Let this restorative yoga for bedtime be a gentle, progressive release of the day.
