10 min Beginner Yoga for Sleep | 30 Day Beginner Yoga Challenge Day 13

published 4 months ago by Dr. Melissa West - Yoga Teacher - Namaste Yoga

Yoga for Sleep Day 13 of our 30 Day Beginner Yoga Challenge is a quiet yoga class to help you fall asleep and stay asleep. This beginner yoga class is a wrist free, prop free class. We will begin with a centering and focus on your exhale to help you release into deep relaxation and sleep. Relaxing poses like wide knee child’s pose will help you to deepen your rest. We will practice a moon channel breathing to help invite in deep sleep. A standing forward fold will invite relaxation and a reclined twist will help to release tension from your body before sleep. In savasana I will read an excerpt from Rubin Naiman’s book, Hush (which I highly recommend). You can do this class if you have never done a yoga class before in your life. I will give you slow, easy to follow, step-by-step instructions and tell you exactly how to get in and out of each and every pose. Detailed instructions will be given for even the most basic poses and how to breathe. You will be given lots of cues of how to pay attention to your body and where to feel the effects of the yoga poses. You do not have to be athletic, flexible, strong, balanced, skinny or coordinated to do this class. The slow, step-by-step instructions will give you the confidence to let go of your self-judgment and stay focused with commitment and motivation.
