A bedtime practice for a good nights sleep

A bedtime practice for a good nights sleep
Namaste, and thank you for checking in with this bedtime practice. Sleep is huge isn’t it? It has a huge affect on our general wellbeing and yet it’s something many of us struggle with. When you get a good nights rest, your feel much more able to function and live joyfully. You may already be trying the usual tricks and suggestions of switching off your technology, having a relaxing bath, reading in bed a little etc… but have you thought about introducing a little Yin Yoga practice as your bedtime ritual? It’s a wonderful idea to try it out, as it declutters a busy mind and releases tension in the body, which creates ahhhhhhh… the right balance and homeostasis for a restful nights sleep. The recording I have for you is a Yin one, which means you can practice this on the mat or even better – whilst in your jim-jams in bed – why not, who’s looking!? ???? It might be nice to cherry-pick 3 or 4 poses from the hours practice that can form your own unique little bedtime ritual/practice – just see. Remember that the style of Yin is passive, grounding and involves long deep holds. – Prepare your mind and body for rest through the Yin asanas – Let emotions rise and fall, with the breath, as we bring about balance within – Let go of the days stresses, strains and feelings of heaviness, tightness and inner holding – Let yourself be held in the safe warm arms of Yin – The practice benefits from having props and what better than our pillows!   Check out the link below to take you direct to the recording within the shop. With love and sweetest of dreams, Adele x
