I'm crystal and I'll be your instructor Through the sequence the's poses will help you reaches deep state of relaxation so you can tripped off to sleep easily. Without effort, go ahead and sit in the easy, cross like position with the spine. Erect. Eyes can be open and gazing at a point. A few feet ahead of you begins to focus on the breath, allowing it to be full, allowing the belly to fill and then exhaling completely indefinitely in the belly collapse Longs. Move breaths. One of the most important tools for rest will sleep and then go ahead and find your way onto your knees. Knees air wide apart. Big toes or touching and hips rests over the ankles. The forehead rests on the floor and on, the palms can be above the head. Or you can rest the arms alongside the body with the palms facing upward, continuing to breathe deeply here and child's pose. Go ahead and extend the arms, press up and then curling the toes under lift the hips and pressed to downward facing dog, pressing the chest towards the lakes, bicycling the heels to stretch out the hamstrings and the Cavs, then coming back to downward facing dog, descending the heels as much as possible, engaging the legs, rolling the elbows in toward each other and continuing to breathe long and deep, filling the belly in the chest and exhaling completely and slowly walk the hands back in towards the feet. Bend the knee slightly coming into a former fold. You can shake the head. No and yes, we're bounced the torso lightly, letting go of any tension. You can interlaced the hands over the elbows and rock gently from side to side, peeling the spine release, creating space between the vertebrae. Really that let the neck and the head go completely and then slowly with control, stack one vertebrae at a time to come up to standing, ending with the head, then come to sit on the mat, lying all the way down on the back. Walk the heels in on, then lift the hips up coming into a plow pose. Compress the hands into the earth for support, using the arms to keep you study, then bending the knees. Just feel that stretch through the back. I feel a sense of relaxation here. No need to strain continuing to breathe deeply on. Straighten the legs. If that's comfortable for you, add a little bit of a stretch in the hamstrings, maybe walking over to one side and taking a slight twist, breathing deeply here and then walking over to the other side. Find your way back to center and slowly with control, roll yourself back down. Press the knees into the chest rock from right to left, massaging the low back, releasing any tension that you might have held from that last pot's. And then, when you're ready to go ahead and place the feet on the mat, make yourself comfortable for this final resting pose. Extend the legs, let the toes fall apart. Let the palms face up toward the ceiling and allow yourself to drift off to sleep, letting go of any thoughts or effort. Complete passivity. 4. Yoga for Sleep 2: welcome to our second session of yoga for deep sleep. I'm crystal and I'll be your instructor. Let's begin in an easy, cross legged position with the spine erect and begin to tune into the breath, feeling the inhale and the exhale, allowing the belly to rise and fall. Feeling the breath on the inhale and exhale like away, gently washing up on the shore and receding back into the ocean. Go ahead and walk the fingertips out onto the mats, twisting the body toward the right knee. Inhale the arms up and exhale forward.

Gentle. Stretching the hips. Allow the next. Relax on. Keep the attention on the breath then and how come back up. Inhale right arm up and exhale. Bring it around to the outside of the left knee. Place the left hand at the base of the spine and twist from the belly button because each inhale, feel yourself grow taller with each exhale. Twists a little bit more. Eventually turning the chin over the shoulder back to center. Reached opposite. Arm up and around, hooking it around the knee. Right palm rests at the base of the spine, pressing into the mat, twisting from the belly button, then the chest, then the shoulders and neck and head, and then exhale. Release back to center. Inhale the left arm up, walk the right fingertips out and come into a side stretch resting either on the fingertips or the palm or the elbow. Spend the chest up toward the sky, opening the heart and then change sides, gazing up toward the fingertips, keeping the heart open and the sit bones grounded and then come back to city. Extend the legs way toes up toward the sky and slowly walk yourself down into a forward fold, keeping the legs engaged.

If the mind feels dull, let's begin with deep breathing, filling the belly, filling the chest and then exhaling, releasing the chest and then the belly, lengthening the breath, smoothing it out, feeling the inhale and the exhale as a wave washing up on the shore and receding to the ocean. Then find your way into a seated position. Bring the right leg over the left so that the hell is parallel with the knee. You can gently press the right knee down to descend toward the hell and then place the hands at the heart, continuing to descend.
