Stretching Under The Stars

When you think of “stretching under the stars”, images on pup tents, clear moonless skies and peaceful sounds of nature may flow through your imagination.  But the folks at MissionFiT aren’t referring to a mid-summer’s eve camping trip, or even a stay-cation in your backyard with your kids.

Practicing Yoga At NightStretching Under The Stars

Believe it or not, there are several benefits to moving through a few yoga poses before bedtime.  In fact, the folks at Yoga Basics list six different benefits, including:

  • Reducing Anxiety & Worry
  • Building a Bedtime Routine
  • Improves Circulation
  • Helps With Weight Loss
  • Soothes Muscles & Joint Pain
  • Reduces Insomnia

Of course, there’s usually a better way to yoga before bed.  Since there are so many types or ‘systems’ of yoga, it’s best to follow a system that’s more relaxing to the body.  For instance, Healthline suggests choosing hatha, yin or restorative yoga to begin your bedtime routine.  Also, you want to start small.  Even if you practice just a few moves for 10 minutes, you will begin to feel the benefits of relaxing before bed.
