Bedtime practice for better sleep

Michele Smith

One of the central focuses of our product line is to encourage good sleep. 
Regular full nights of uninterrupted sleep can help improve hormones, inflammation, immune system, blood pressure and cardiovascular health. *

Many of us struggle to decompress from a hectic day so that we can get good sleep. One way to settle the mind is to bring conscious attention to the body and the breath. Here is a nighttime stretch you can practice to help settle the mind by stretching one of the largest muscle groups, the psoas muscles. 


Half- frog pose:

Lay on your belly and bend the right leg at a 90 degree angle, with the ankle lining up under he knee. Flex the foot slightly. 

Hold this stretch for 2-5 minutes on each side. 

To get the most of your time, be sure to let your exhales linger 1.5 to 2 times longer than your inhale (ex: breathe in to the count of 4, out to the count of 6 or 8).
