This 30-minute yoga for sleep sequence includes the following asanas:
 

1. Standing Forward Fold

Help your body relax and decompress from the day with a gentle standing forward fold.
 

2. Downward Facing Dog

Down Dog is a full body stretch that helps counteract all the sitting many of us do throughout the day – another great way to relax the body and also slow the heart rate and calm the mind.
 

3. Lizard Pose

This yoga pose helps lengthen your hamstrings and open your hips – two areas that hold a lot of tension and tightness in the body.
 

4. Seated Neck Stretches

Reverse the effects of hunching over a computer, phone screen, or steering wheel with gentle neck stretches.
 

5. Seated Wide Leg Forward Fold

Begin to slow down and breathe even deeper as you relax into a seated wide leg forward fold (option for pillow beneath your knees and/or tailbone).
 

6. Decompressed Frog

This restorative yoga pose is appropriately named, because it helps you decompress by lengthening and relaxing the neck, spine, and hips.
 

7. Childs Pose Thread the Needle

Childs Pose is a gentle restorative posture for the low back in particular. It calms mind and body, and adding the Thread the Needle variation also opens and relaxes the shoulders.
 

8. Bridge Pose

This yoga pose calms the mind and is a proven stress buster. You’ll feel it yourself while you’re in Bridge Pose!
 

9. Eka Pada Apanasana

Also known as Energy Freeing Pose, this yoga pose relieves tension in the low back, releases stagnant energy, and creates a relaxing feeling for mind and body.
 

10. Reclined Twist

This yoga pose gently decompress your spine so your body can soften into full relaxation – perfect before bed.
 

11. Happy Baby

Stretch the hamstrings, hips, hip flexors and inner groin with this pose, which also helps you relax and relieve stress.
 

12. Legs Up the Wall

One of the most popular yoga poses for stress relief and relaxation, Legs Up the Wall is a fan favorite for unwinding and is very effective for falling asleep and cultivating restful sleep.
 

End With Final Savasana

Take your final resting pose in a supported variation with a pillow beneath your knees. You can even do Savasana in bed and fall asleep from there!
