If you’re having problems falling asleep, you are not the only one. Insomnia is a big problem in today’s society which can leave your robbed of energy and looking like a zombie in the morning.

Although it seems impossible to treat, insomnia and other sleeping disorders can be resolved with yoga.

You don’t need much of it – staying in a certain yoga position for up to a minute in the beginning and gradually increasing the duration can be beneficial and help you sleep better. Here are the best yoga poses against insomnia:
Balasana – the child pose
The balasana pose isn’t suitable for people suffering from knee problems, but others can benefit from it greatly. The balasana pose can relax your back, shoulders, belly and mind and help you fall asleep. If you can’t touch your butt and heels, just put a folded blanket under it. Stretch your arms like in the picture above and let everything go. Keep the pose for a minute and breathe deeply into your back when doing it.
Supta Baddha Konasana – bound angle reclining pose
The so-called “butterfly pose” can be done by lying on your back, propping up the knees and touching your soles together. Most people can’t do the pose without their knees being separated from the ground by a few inches, and that’s ok. Just be comfortable, breathe deeply into your lower belly and relax, while letting your arms to the sides.
Lie on the back like on the picture above, then rock gently from side to side. This will stretch your body and massage your lower back, while relaxing your legs and feet. Let your shoulders fall toward the ground and breathe deeply for best results.
Supta Matsyendrasana (Reclining spinal twist)
Lie on your back and get your knees up, then leave them on the right side. Stabilize your legs by holding your left thigh with the right hand, while stretching your left arm to the left and rolling your head to the left as well. Relax your shoulders on the ground and breathe deeply, then repeat the spinal twist on the right side.
Matyasana – fish pose
Lie on your back with your arms on the sides, then slide them hands down under your butt. Now, start pressing the lower arms into the ground and bend your elbows, then lift your upper body slowly from the ground and hold the head up. If you’re uncomfortable, let your head fall towards the ground and relax.
