In this article, we will discuss 5 yoga techniques that can improve your bedtime routine and help you sleep better.

If you are looking for ways to improve sleep, yoga might be your answer. Packed with several amazing benefits, make sure you try out the following yoga poses to restore balance and prepare your body for some nighttime rest.

1. Tree Pose

To start with the formation of the tree pose, balance your body on the right leg. Make sure you fold your other leg and support it on the inner thigh of your standing leg. Now stretch your arms above with your hands clasped together and pointed upwards.

Now gaze in the distance as you shift your weight to the other leg but don’t straighten your right knee. You can hold this position for a few seconds before you repeat it with the other leg.

2. Supported Child’s Pose

Grab yourself a pillow and sit at one end. Place your thighs on either side of the pillow and your sitting hip bones directly on your heels. Then lean forward and rest your body on the pillow, turning your head to one of the sides.

At this point, you must let go of your body weight onto the pillow, along with any disturbing thoughts that you may have. Stay in the position for around 10 to 15 breaths, after which you should move your head to the other side.

3. Happy Baby Pose

To get in the position, lie down on your back and make sure it is stretched.

Then, bring your knees to your chest and try grabbing your feet. Start extending your legs slightly and widen the gap between your knees. Your elbows should fall in between your thighs at this point and push into your hands.

This should stretch your body enough, but if you want, you can roll your body in different directions to massage it further. Hold this position for around 10 to 15 breaths.

4. Camel Pose

Get started by kneeling down on your yoga mat, keeping the knees and feet together. Now, start pushing your hips towards your front while leaning your body backwards. Now, you will need to bend your spine and head towards the back. Make sure you go back as far as you can.

Then, rest your hand on your feet and relax your body, especially the back muscles. Hold this position for a few seconds and then release.

5. Twisted Roots Pose

For this pose, get in the Happy Baby Pose and bring your legs down. You knees should be bent and pointed upwards while your heel touches the floor. Now, lift your hips and place them back on the floor, over to the side. Then, bring your knees closer to your chest and let them fall on the opposite side.

Now spread your arms turn your neck, and look in the opposite direction of your knees. Hold the position for around 100 to 15 breaths and repeat on the other side.
