Insomnia is a prevalent condition these days, and certain yoga poses are proven to be one of the most efficient methods to cure the condition. It helps you achieve a better sleep, almost immediately.
I don't claim yoga alone to be the sure cure for the condition, but you will go a long way managing the sleep deprivation if you add yoga to your routine lifestyle.
But not any yoga exercises but some specific one. In the video, at the top, is a particular pose that will benefit you if you are an insomniac. I suggest performing them during the evening.
Although there are specific poses to cure certain conditions yet the principle rule of treating disease with yogic activities remains same, and it is- To Bring The Entire Body System In Balance. Almost all yoga poses work on bringing the body to homeostasis.
Insomnia occurs as a result of stress, anxiety, high blood pressure, hormonal dis-balance, etc. Regardless of the cause, yoga cures the body as a whole, brings everything into balance, thus, throwing the disease out of your body. On the way, you achieve many additional health benefits without even targeting them.
Reclined bound angle pose acts as a boon to those suffering from lack of sleep or insomnia. Do it just before sleeping, and you will achieve a good night sleep with ease. It is even better if you do it in your bed at nigh-time.
That's it. Now stay in this posture for a couple of minutes. Take deep breaths and allow your entire body to relax. Once done, return to the initial position, open your legs, and shake them gently to relax.
The reclined bound angle pose switches your body and, more importantly, your brain in relaxed mode and you can achieve a better sleep without much trouble. You can perform this pose for up to 5 minutes but start low and increase slowly.
No doubt, yoga poses are mostly harmless. But, it is advisable to learn them first, under the supervision of a skilled yoga teacher, before you perform them in your privacy. If you can't find a yoga instructor near you, make sure you have a person to assist you while trying any new yogic exercise.
Please take note, yoga treats the body as a system and heals it from the inside out. If you can't see some immediate benefits, give it a little time. Try it for at least four weeks and see your sleep getting better.
