Health Tip: Yoga Before Bed

Posted July 14, 2017

(HealthDay News) -- Yoga, practiced just before bed, may help you wind down and prepare for sleep.

The National Sleep Foundation suggests these poses may help before bed:
  • Cat/cow pose, done on the hands and knees and alternating between arching your back and letting it sink while raising your chest.
  • Chair pose, performed in a position that resembles sitting in a chair.
  • Reclining hand to big toe pose, done stretched out on the floor with a yoga strap around the sole of one foot. Stretch a leg straight up, pressing your heel upward while you hold the yoga strap. Alternate legs.
  • Corpse pose, performed by lying flat on your back, legs and arms extended and palms facing up. Close your eyes and breathe deeply.
