Yin yoga holds a special place in my tool box of practices that help me calm down from my busy life. A few Yin yoga postures before bed can help me settle down for a peaceful nourishing sleep. Have a some time before bed tonight? Try out the following sequence of poses to help calm your nervous system and transition into a restful state. Stay in each pose for up to 3 minutes to reap the full benefits. You can practice all but the first pose in bed even!!!! I like to cover myself in a blanket and practice in front of the fire.
As with any posture practice, if you feel something isn't right or being in the pose hurts then ease yourself out. Consider stopping all use of computer technology for 60 minutes before bed time to make falling and staying asleep easier.
