Yoga for real life - bedtime yoga

To prepare for bed a yoga practice needs to remove any tension from your body and calm your mind.  Your yoga practice therefore needs to be one that takes your focus away from your day or from the what is to come tomorrow and turn your attention inwards.  Gentle inversions and forward bends can help calm your mind so that you can relax into sleep. 

Breathing practices such as Moon breathing which we practice in the video can also help calm the mind.

Yoga nidra might sound like a good idea but practiced too close to bedtime it can refresh rather than calm the mind.  It is good to practice earlier however.  The meditation we practice is one in which we focus on letting go.  

For Ayurveda evening routine tips look out for Wednesday's post.
