Most of us turn to yoga only for weight loss or respiratory problems. But yoga is a spiritual exercise that can do much more than giving you a slimmer waistline. There are certain yoga poses to do at night only. These are basically yoga poses for sleep and relaxation. If you do a short yoga session at night, you can cure problems related to stress and sleep deprivation.
Here are few suggested poses that just might help you to get a better night of sleep. Just make sure to throw on your pajamas first so that you can head straight to bed.
Here Are The Yoga Poses You Should Try At Night Time:
Pigeon Pose (right and left)
Get down on all fours. Place your right knee behind your right wrist and angle your right foot towards the left. Slide your left leg back. Place a pillow lengthwise, to the left of your right leg. Lay your belly and chest on the pillow and let your arms relax to either side. Relax your head to whichever side feels most comfortable and breathe deeply. If the stretch is too intense, Jacubowicz suggests placing another pillow underneath your chest, or using a cushion to support your right hip. Repeat this pose on the opposite side.
This is the bound angle pose in which you have to sit straight and bring your feet in front of you. The soles of your feet should be touching each other to form a closed triangle.
Lie down on your back. Put a pillow, lengthwise, underneath your spine. Bring the soles of your feet together until they touch and then let your knees gently drop to the sides. Be sure to keep your hips off of the pillow. Stretch your arms out to the side, away from your body, with your palms facing upwards. Jacubowicz says you can put a pillow underneath your knees if you need to decrease the intensity of the stretch in your hips.
Knee to Chest Pose (Apanasana)
This poses stretches your hips and lower back and helps alleviate back pain. It also works to ease digestive problems which of course translates to purification and elimination of mental and physical toxins.
The plough pose helps to relax your back and leg muscles before you go to bed. It is not very easy to master. But once you have learned this pose, you must practise it before bed time.
Lie down on your back. Engage your abdominal muscles to lift your legs over your head until your toes touch the floor behind your head. If your toes don’t reach the floor, do this pose against the wall (lying perpendicular with your head touching the wall) so that your feet will be supported by the wall. If you can, interlace your fingers behind your back and then slowly straighten your arms, otherwise, just keep your arms at your sides, palms facing downwards. When you want to get out of the pose, do so carefully by rolling slowly out of it, one vertebra at a time. According to Brandow, plow pose helps stretch out your back and neck muscles, reducing physical tension and relaxing your body.
Child Pose (Balasana)
This is the child pose that apes the foetal position that we are in our mother’s womb. This is the most natural and instinctive position for any human being to feel relaxed and get lulled to sleep.
Marichi Pose (Marichyasana)
Marichi Pose often also called Sage’s Pose stretches the hips, hamstrings and shoulders. It benefits your digestive system. Use of a band is helpful if your hands can’t meet in the back.
