Find Solace in Slumber: Enhance Sleep with the Power of Yoga


For optimal physical and mental well-being, adults require approximately seven hours of sleep per night.

  • 70% of adults experience insufficient sleep at least once monthly.
  • 11% of adults experience poor sleep quality nightly.

Yoga Poses for Improved Sleep

Yoga instructor and founder of Yogi Times, Emily Anderson, recommends specific yoga poses to improve sleep.

Happy Baby Pose

Also known as Ananda Balasana, this pose decompresses the lower body and promotes relaxation.

  • Lie on your back.
  • Bring your knees to your chest.
  • Grasp the outsides of your feet with your hands.
  • Spread your knees wider than your torso.

Child’s Pose

Child’s pose, or Balasana, releases tension and fosters bedtime comfort.

  • Kneel on the floor with hips-width knee separation.
  • Sit back on your heels.
  • Fold forward, placing your torso between your thighs.
  • Extend your arms forward or alongside your body.
  • Rest your forehead on the floor.

Corpse Pose

Savasana, commonly known as corpse pose, induces relaxation and prepares for sleep.

  • Lie flat on your back with legs slightly apart.
  • Relax your arms by your side with palms facing up.

Incorporating these yoga poses into your pre-bedtime routine can improve sleep quality, reduce stress, and enhance overall well-being.
