“I’ll sleep when I’m dead.” “Grind now. Sleep later.” Those are popular pieces of advice that people give to those who want success. But if you’ve been paying attention to health science lately or are just plain worn out after a long day, then you know that sleep is vital to your success and overall health.

Sleep deprivation can wreak havoc on your body.

It affects every aspect of our health including memory, cognition, aging, and sex drive, as well as increases your risk of getting high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, and more.

Today, we focus on the link between yoga and sleep, plus give you some poses to do to foster a better night’s sleep.

How Does Yoga Help You Sleep?

Although many types of yoga, like vinyasa flow or hot yoga, can energize you, a gentle yoga routine can promote relaxation and ease your mind and body into a restful state.
