Yoga coach reveals three easy poses to help with falling back to sleep

The Yogi revealed their top tips

There's nothing better than rising from a proper good night's sleep feeling rested and refreshed for the day ahead.

However, actually drifting off once your slumber has been disrupted during the night can be harder for some than others.

But, not to worry, as one yoga coach has revealed three easy poses to help with falling back to sleep once you've woken up in the middle of the night.

Jesse Gabler, the founder of YOGI TIMES, has shared three yoga poses that will soothe you back to sleep in no time.

Happy Baby Pose

Up first is the Happy Baby pose which is also known as 'Ananda Balasana'.

To do this pose, simply lie on your back and bring your knees towards your chest then just grab the outside edges of your feet with your hands, opening your knees wider than your torso.

Throw in a little gentle rock from side to side which will give your spine a much-needed massage on the floor.

This movement is great for stretching out the lower back and hips, which is where tension accumulates during the day.

To get the most out of this particularly playful pose, be sure to breathe deeply for a few minutes which will help calm your mind, lighten your mood, and prepare your body for sleep.

Corpse Pose

Now, don't be put off by the name as the Corpse post, or 'Savasana', can significantly relax your nervous system, making it easier to fall asleep.

Usually used to finish up a yoga session, this pose which is all about surrendering your body to gravity involves laying flat on your back with your legs spread slightly apart.

Keep your arms relaxed at your sides with your palms facing up before closing your eyes and focusing on deep, slow breathing.

Even doing the pose for a few minutes will help release physical tension and clear the mind of stress - making it a whole lot easier to drift off back to your beauty sleep once again.

Child's Pose

And last on the list is the famous Child's Pose, also known as 'Balasana'.

To perform this calming yoga posture, start by kneeling on the floor and sitting back on your heels.

Spread your knees as wide as your hips, then fold forward to lay your torso between your thighs before extending your arms forward or alongside your body, with your forehead resting on the floor.

This pose will gently stretch your back, hips, thighs, and ankles and will also encourage a sense of safety and comfort, which will especially benefit those who wake up feeling anxious or unsettled.

The yoga coach also recommends breathing deeply during this pose as it will make it 'even more effective'.

Sweet dreams!
