Allow your arms by your sides and palms upside down. Close your eyes and simply breathe, by doing this, your mind begins to budge towards the present moment indeed helping your joints, mind and muscle to relax as well as prepare for deep snooze.

2.       Thread the needle-

Lie down on your back; with head flat on the floor, bend your knees as well as position your feet soles on the floor.  Bring your right knee to your chest. By keeping your hips even you need to position your right ankle below your left knee. Your right knee will be facing right. Now flex your right foot in order to keep your muscles engaged. You must protect your knee from strain. Now lift your left foot off to the floor and bring your left knee toward your chest. Use your hands on either side in order to support your left thigh. You must feel a stretch on outside of your right hip. As you breathe you must try to bring you both the hips parallel to each other. Repeat the same on the other side as well.

3.       Child’s pose-

Comfortably sit up on heels, roll forward your torso and bring your forehead in front to rest. Lower or bring your chest close to the knees as comfortably as possible and extent both the arms in front. Breathe deeply in order to create calming sensation. Always try to widen your spine as long as you can with every exhale. With this yoga pose you will be blocked out distractions.

4.       Reclined twist-

Lie down on your back; bring your knees towards your chest. Stretch your left arm sideways at your shoulder height and your palm facing-up. Keep your knees high and slowly bring your knees out to your right till they reach floor. Now place your right hand on your right knees top. You may also use your right hand for your hip and outer-left leg massage. During this yoga pose, look straight up to the ceiling or to the left slightly. After a few minutes, repeat the same on the other side.

Это действительно работает! Любые упражнения на растяжку улучшают не только сон,они нас делают более радостными,подвижными,коммуникабельными,терпимыми. Более того мы начинаем становиться более удачливыми,т.к. состояние нашего позвоночника улучшается,суставы становятся более подвижными, восстанавливается гормональный баланс и мы готовы горы свернуть...
