Poses and Practices to Improve Your Rest

Exploring a realm of tranquility and holistic well-being, engage in a symphony of restorative poses and mindful practices that usher you into a serene oasis of relaxation. Begin your journey by surrendering to the grounding embrace of child’s pose, a gentle stretch that unravels tension from your spine and fosters a connection between breath and movement.

Transition into the soothing cadence of reclined butterfly pose, allowing the soft opening of your hips to release stored stress. As you gracefully move through each pose, invite the quietude of the present moment to permeate your consciousness, fostering a sense of inner stillness.


1. Child’s Pose (Balasana):

Kneel on the mat with toes together and knees hip-width apart.
Extend arms in front, lowering chest towards the ground.
Relaxes the spine, shoulders, and neck, promoting deep rest.

2.Legs-Up-The-Wall Pose (Viparita Karani):

Lie on your back and lift legs against a wall.
Helps drain tension from the legs, reducing swelling and promoting relaxation.

3.Corpse Pose (Savasana):

Lie on your back, arms by your sides, palms facing up.

4.Reclining Bound Angle Pose (Supta Baddha Konasana):
