  1. Yoga is definitely a good sleep aid. It increases your awareness of your link between your mind and body, and relaxes them both to a point where you are relaxed enough to fall asleep easily at night.

  2. I’ve often encountered difficulty sleeping. While I don’t practice yoga, I do appreciate it’s ability to reduce stress and tension just before bed-time. What it won’t do, however, is keep your mind and body relaxed and unstressed once you crawl into bed and lay your head to pillow. That’s always been my issue, and I’m sure I share it.

    Fortunately, I’ve found something that does work once your head’s on the pillow, a nightly breathing practice that rarely fails to lull me off to quiet slumbers even under the greatest of stresses,. The best things about it? It’s free, a very simple practice which can be used anywhere, without pharmaceutical aids or complicated preparation.
