8 Minute Yoga for Better Sleep
Fitness Magazine

Sleep is so important and when I came across this article, I thought I have to share this!  So many of us have a difficult time sleeping or staying asleep, and Fitness Magazine had a great article with the steps (listed below) to a better night sleep. Give it a try, it can’t hurt.

Click on the name if each for the exact description of the step from Fitness Magazine.  

Upside down relaxation (0-2 min.)

Put your butt to the wall or headboard with your legs against the wall.

Winding down twist (2-3 min.)

Sit with legs crossed twist body to right with left hand on knee, repeat on left side.

Goddess stretch (3-5 min.)

Lie flat, put soles of feet together with knees bent and flat to the ground.

Child’s pose (5-7 min.)

Traditional kneeling position, sit on feet, nose to floor and stretch arms out as far as you can.

Rock-a-by roll (7-8 min.)

Sit with legs into chest, ankles crossed, roll onto back, in hale as you roll your see up and exhale as you roll onto your back.
