Pose your way to a peaceful night’s sleep
SIMBA Sleep, the creators of the world’s most advanced mattress, has partnered with leading yoga intructor Clara Baker from Chroma Yoga to curate a yoga routine that can be easily done from the comfort of a bed, and that is guaranteed to ease us into a calming state of mind to aid sleep.
Baddha Konasana – Bound Angle Pose
From a seated position, place the soles of the feet together and open the knees outwards. Take the hands onto the feet and open them out like a book. Inhaling, lift the chest and look up, exhaling, fold forward. Breathe slowly and stay here for 5-10 breaths.
Ardha Matsyendrasana – Simple seated twist
Bring the knees together. Place both hands on the knees and inhaling, lift the chest to sit tall. As you exhale turn to your right, wrapping your left arm around your knees and taking the right hand onto the mattress behind you for support. Stay here breathing slowly for 5-10 breaths. Repeat twisting to the left.
Apanasana – Knees to chest pose
From your seated twist come to lying on your back and hug both knees in towards your chest. As you inhale, feel the legs lift away from the abdomen slightly and as you exhale, use the arms to gently draw them in closer. Breathe slowly here for 5-10 breaths.
