How To Use Yoga For Better Sleep

This yoga guide and gummies are just what you need to hit the hay. Created with PLUS.

Thanks to PLUS and their innovative formulations, getting a peaceful sleep just got easier.

We want to help give you a quality sleep, and you guessed it, that starts with stimulating the body with helpful poses and movements to induce drowsiness and make you feel relaxed.

What you didn’t guess is that we’d recommend a sleep-aid edible and the best one on the market.

PLUS’ Dual Action Sleep Gummies are formulated with nanoemulsion technology containing THC, CBD, and CBN, all of which target a quality slumber.

Now that you’ve scarfed down the best sleep gummies on the market, it’s time to get spiritual and roll out your yoga mat.

No mat? No problem.

Simply do these poses and movements on any carpet or soft floor that will support your fluid motions. PLUS recommends you take 8-10 slow breaths with each pose to lock in those relaxing sensations.

Standing Forward Fold (Uttanasana)

Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Bend knees and slowly fold your body down, starting with your head.

This is the perfect start to relaxation by imagining all the day’s stress drip from the crown of your head.

Child's Pose (Balasana)

Now that you’re folded over, slowly descend to your mat and sit on your knees. Open your knees wider than your hips and slowly reach forward until your forehead rests on the mat/floor.

Sit those hips back towards your heels and continue to imagine your daily stressors escaping from whatever end you choose!

Slowly lean upwards from your child’s pose and sit down with your legs together or hip-width apart.

Slowly fold down and reach as far as you can to your feet without straining. Fluid movements are key for avoiding strained or pulled muscles.

Feel free to keep your legs slightly bent.

Legs-Up-The-Wall Pose (Viparita Karani)

Lean upwards and scoot over to a wall. With your bum as close to the wall as possible, lift your legs up the wall and sit them upright.

This helps drain lactic acid from the legs to help produce easier, relaxed, and fluid movements.

Reclining Butterfly Pose (Supta Baddha Konasana)

Shift onto your mat and lay on your back. Bring the soles of your feet together and slowly spread your knees apart.

This is a deep hip opener, and feel free to place some type of support under the outer sides of your legs.

Happy Baby (Ananda Balasana)

In the same position, slowly close your legs with your knees bent and reach through your legs to hold the outer sides of your feet.

Press your feet into your hands and hold the pose or rock side to side like a happy baby.

Spinal Twist (Jathara Parivartanasana)

Close your legs and bring your knees into your chest. Gently let them drift over to one side with your back flat on the mat/floor. Open your arms wide and take deep breaths as gravity does its work.

Corpse Pose (Savasana)

Congratulations, you’ve reached your final pose. Take a few deep breaths and let your body lie on the mat like a corpse on its back. This pose is ideal for mentally imagining the stress ooze from your skin while you inhale new and refreshing energy.

This pose might be done best in bed, especially after taking PLUS’s Dual Action Sleep Gummies.
