When it concerns treating insomnia, doctors who are believers of alternate medicines recommend yoga, meditation, etc to soothe the nerves and calm the body. But not many know how to do them safely and in the recommended manner. This is because accessing easy ways to practice such exercises is often difficult. Here is some online help.
Some easy-to-follow yoga tutorial lessons are available on this site http://www.fitsugar.com/Yoga-Poses-Better-Sleep-18801800 that can be helpful for anyone wanting to practice yoga.
The site quite simply describes 10 yoga poses with the help of extremely lucid videos. The postures are gentle on the senses and easy-to-follow. They do not involve doing complicated limb maneuvering, which scare many people. The poses are designed to control the mind and make it focus inwards – a cue to a sustainable relaxation. They also show several stretching postures that can help relax and ease the muscles that are most prone to get tensed.
The one that is particularly appealing is called ‘Seated Heart Opener’ designed to stretch the abs and the neck very gently. Since the neck is usually the most stressed out, this particular exercise can help with the relaxation of this area. Instructions are simple – start by sitting on the heels (one could also extend the legs straight out, incase sitting on heels is painful). Then the hands should be placed about a foot away behind followed by leaning backwards slightly. Follow the video and lower the head between the shoulders. Count up to five breaths and you can instantly feel something good happening.
This is a site worth visiting if one is looking for easy-to-follow video instructions for doing yoga.
