One of the most common statements I hear after students have practised yoga class is that they have the best nights sleep of the week. This is due to the impact that yoga practice has on your nervous system. Yoga helps to gently re-balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system which leaves you feeling more relaxed with less agitation.
Research by Harvard also revealed 55% of people who practised yoga had a better nights sleep, whilst 85% reported it reduced their stress levels. (1) One of the postures in this article is Legs up the Wall which is my go to posture to release over tired tension in my body. By this I mean when you are tired but you find it hard to stop and rest.
Use video below and take steps to prepare yourself for a good nights sleep.
