After a long tiring day, all we look forward to is going home and getting some sleep. Yet sometimes, even doing something we need and love, like sleeping, can be hard due to our bodies aching or feeling sore. But what if we said that doing some simple yoga can help ease this pain and help you sleep better? Here are some yoga poses you can try in bed to ease your pain and help you get better sleep:
Fire Log Pose
First sit on your bed with your legs in front of you. Then bring each leg toward you, as if you were about sit cross legged, and then put your right leg on top your left leg and your right ankle on top of your left knee. Lastly, sit straight and slowly breathe in and out. This pose helps to combat lower back and hip pain.
Begin by getting into a tabletop pose. Then bring your hands forward, keeping your arms distant from your shoulder. Keep your hips above your knees and rest your forehead on the bed. Breathe in and out. This pose helps to ease pain located on your upper back.
Start by laying flat on your stomach. Place your hands right under your shoulder and keep your elbows next to your rib cage. Lift yourself using your back muscles and breathe in and out. The cobra pose helps to combat spine pain and also eases digestive issues.
Seated Forward Fold Pose
Sit up with your leg stretched out in front of you and make sure your heels are pushing forward. Fold forward over your legs and try your best to keep your back flat. This pose helps to release tension by stretching your muscles in your hamstrings and upper back.
Supine Hamstring Pose
Begin by laying flat on your back and lift either one of your legs. Then place both your hands underneath your thigh and pull your leg towards yourself. Make sure to not lift up your shoulders off the bed. Breathe in and out and then do the same using your other leg. This pose combats pain in the lower back and reduces hip pain.
We hope these simple yoga poses that you can do right on your bed help ease your pain and you get the sleep you deserve!
