5 Easy Yoga Poses You Can Do Before Going To Bed For A Goodnight's Sleep

Are you someone who has trouble sleeping? Well, amid our daily schedules and a lot of screen time, sleeping peacefully or rather on time has become a common problem. But that is when yoga comes to the rescue. 

There are a few easy-to-do yoga poses that can help you sleep like a baby. Divya Rolla, Yoga Expert at Cult has helped us get to know what they are and if you are somewhat of an insomniac just like us, you have to try them.

Here are 5 easy to do yoga asanas that can help with sleep:

1. Supta Baddha Konasana (Reclining Bound Angle Pose)

You can place a cushion under each
knee for extra support. This posture is restorative, or passive, and it allows the body to rest. This
pose can soothe the nervous system, which has many physiological benefits including lowering
the heart rate and aiding in digestion and sleep. It also opens up the hips, shoulders, and chest,
and in doing so allows for deeper diaphragmatic breathing. For some people, this pose can also
relieve tension and alleviate pain in the lower back.

2. Supta Padangusthasana 

Hold for 1 min on each side and repeat twice. You may place a bolster under the thigh of the leg
being lifted for further support. This posture stretches the inner groin and also helps improve the
flexibility of the hips. It also improves overall blood circulation in our legs, hips and lower
abdominal region.
