Yoga for Sleep

I want to help my clients with a simple 6 pose routine they can do to turn down their energies and prepare for sleep. What would be your fav 3 poses?

PS this will be demonstrated in a salt therapy room (think comfy lounge chairs, soft lights& music and a floor full of loose salt. Probably best to think of things to do sitting as mobility for many is a bit challenging. The ions really help promote sleep but i think everyone needs a little help and would be nice to talk about it and have some go to moves to help prepare you for sleep.
Thanks for any suggestions!

Hi Shawna! That salt room sounds so relaxing and zen :star_struck:

Here are some classes that hopefully help give you some ideas for poses! I tried to only include ones with pretty simple poses since you mentioned mobility might be an issue, but many are more floor/laying down based instead of sitting. Let me know if these types of positions won’t work for your clients. Do you have access to any props?

I hope these help :slightly_smiling_face: I would love to see what the rest of the community suggests as well!
