Yoga for Sleep

May 1, 2013

Do you have trouble sleeping?

 

Try Yoga - Not Pills

 

Alternate Nostril Breathing:

 

You don’t breathe equally through your nostrils all the time.  Right now, you will be favouring either your left nostril or your right nostril.  Your nose is directly linked to your brain and nervous system.

Left nostril for calming

  • As you breath in through left nostril you access the Right “Emotional” hemisphere of the brain

  • breathing in through your right nosril

Right nostril for energy:

  • The right nostril, will access the left “thinking” hemisphere of your brain. 

  • Consciously alternating your breath between either nostril will  Synchronise both the left “thinking” brain and right “feeling brain:

  • Allowing you to activate and access your whole brain.

Benefits

  • Revitalizes:  a pick me up if you are feeling flat, tired or stressed.

  • Improves concentration and clarity: equalises the amount oxygen to both sides of the brain for improved brain function. 

  • Calms the mind: relieving emotional stress

  • Improves sleep If you can’t sleep lay on your right hand side, close your right nostril with thumb and breath through your left nostril.  This will activate your parasympathetic nervous system which will calm you down and slow your heart rate and encourage sleep
