5. Reclining Hero Pose
Tuck your legs beneath you, sitting on your shins, and sit with a bolster placed at the base of your spine. Make sure you seat yourself between your ankles, and, if needed to protect your muscles, place your knees as wide as your hips. Lean backward onto the bolster, keeping your shoulders away from your ears and resting your head on a blanket. Allow yourself to breathe and relax into the pose for twenty to thirty breaths.
6. Bridge Pose
Bend your knees and place your feet on the floor hip-width apart. Be careful to keep them parallel and below the knees. Take a deep breath, tighten your core muscles, and curl your pelvis up off the floor. Place a block directly below your sacrum. Allow yourself to relax into the pose for twenty to thirty breaths.
7. Savasana (Corpse Pose)
Lay on your back with your legs and arms slightly starfished out from you. Close your eyes and relax. Take deep breaths. Hold this pose for as long as you like!
These poses will help tired, tense muscles relax. Make sure you focus on your breathing. Use fluid, gentle movements, close your eyes, and allow the tension to leave your body. Try to keep your mind clear, and sleep should follow. No more restless nights!
