Yoga Poses For Sleep
There are many poses that can be helpful for sleep, but here are four of my favorites.
1. Legs up the wall pose (Viparita Karani)
This pose is incredibly calming and relaxing. It helps to calm the mind and soothe the nervous system. It also helps to relieve stress and fatigue.
To do this pose, sit with your back against a wall and then lift your legs up so that they are perpendicular to the ground. You can stay here for as long as you like, but aim to stay for at least 5 minutes.
2. Child’s pose (Balasana)
Child’s pose is a great pose to do before bed because it helps to stretch the hips and the lower back. It is also calming and relaxing, and can help to relieve stress and anxiety.
To do this pose, start on all fours, and then bring your knees and feet together. Sit your hips back onto your heels, and then extend your arms forward. You can stay here for as long as you like.
3. Corpse pose (Savasana)
Corpse pose is one of the most important poses in yoga, and it is also one of the most calming and relaxing poses. It helps to relieve stress and tension, and it can also help to improve sleep quality.
To do this pose, lie down on your back and extend your arms and legs out. Allow your body to relax completely, and stay here for 5-10 minutes.
4. Seated forward fold (Paschimottanasana)
Seated forward fold is a great pose to do before bed because it helps to stretch the hips, the hamstrings, and the lower back. It is also calming and relaxing, and can help to relieve stress and anxiety.
To do this pose, sit with your legs extended straight out in front of you. fold forward at the hips, and allow your head and neck to hang down. You can stay here for as long as you like.
Yoga Bird Pose
is a deep hip opener that also stretches the chest and front of the body. It’s named for the way a bird spreads its wings to fly.
To do Yoga Bird Pose, start in Downward-Facing Dog. Bring your right foot forward between your hands, and lower your left knee to the ground. Step your left foot back and press your hips up and back into Downward-Facing Dog.
Inhale and lift your right arm up, then reach it back and clasp your right hand with your left hand. Keep your shoulders down and your chest open.
Exhale and fold forward, lowering your forehead to the ground. Hold for a few breaths, then release and switch sides.
Yoga Poses To Help You Poop
There are many yoga poses that can help you poop, but the best poses for this vary depending on your individual needs.
For example, if you are constipated, a simple forward fold can help to stimulate your intestines and encourage bowel movements.
If you are having trouble passing a hard stool, a squat might be a better pose for you. This pose helps to open up the hips and pelvis, making it easier for the stool to pass.
There are many other poses that can help with bowel movements, so it is important to experiment until you find the poses that work best for you.
Some other helpful poses include:
These poses can help to open up the hips, abdomen, and chest, all of which can help to encourage bowel movements.
In addition to practicing these poses regularly, it is also important to drink plenty of fluids and eat plenty of high-fiber foods. This will help to keep your bowel movements regular and easy to pass.
Mountain Yoga Pose
Mountain pose is the foundational pose in yoga. It is a simple pose that can be done by anyone, regardless of their experience level. Mountain pose is a great way to start your practice because it helps to ground you and connect you with your breath.
Parsvottanasana is a variation of mountain pose that is a little more challenging. It is a great pose to improve your balance and strengthen your legs and core.
To do parsvottanasana, start in mountain pose. Step your left foot forward a few inches and turn your left heel in so that your toes are pointing to the right. Reach your arms out to the sides and lean your torso forward, keeping your spine long. Hold for a few breaths, then switch sides.
Parsvottanasana is a great pose to improve your balance and strength. It can be a little challenging for beginners, so start slowly and build up your practice.
Yoga Poses Extreme
There’s no doubt that yoga is an incredibly beneficial form of exercise. But, like any other type of workout, it can also be taken to extremes. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at some of the most extreme yoga poses out there, and explain why you should avoid them if you’re not a trained professional.
One of the most extreme yoga poses is the Scorpion pose. This pose is incredibly dangerous and should only be attempted by trained professionals. It involves lying on your back and then extending your legs up in to the air, while simultaneously bending your torso backwards. This pose can cause serious injuries if not done correctly, so it’s best to avoid it if you’re not experienced.
Another extremely dangerous yoga pose is the Camel pose. This pose involves standing on your knees and then leaning backwards, while reaching your arms up in to the air. This pose can cause back injuries if not done correctly, so it’s best to avoid it if you’re not experienced.
The Crow pose is another extremely challenging yoga pose. It involves standing on your hands and then bending your knees until your thighs are parallel to the floor. This pose can be very difficult to hold for an extended period of time, and can also cause injuries if not done correctly.
So, if you’re not a trained professional, it’s best to avoid the most extreme yoga poses. These poses can be dangerous and can cause serious injuries if not done correctly. Instead, stick to basic yoga poses that are safe and effective for beginners.
