While some people may think they can’t do yoga, or that they aren’t flexible enough, that’s not always the case. There are many simple and relaxing yoga poses that can be adapted to all bodies.
Certain yoga poses can help you stretch, relax and get in a restful mindset for a good night of sleep. The poses outlined here focus on the breath and putting the body in positions that allow for optimal blood flow to the brain, all of which encourage a calm state.
Warning: Those with injuries or chronic pain should approach these poses with caution. Consult your doctor before starting any exercise regimen. This article is for general information purposes only and is not intended as medical or other professional advice.

Does Doing Yoga Before Bed Help Sleep?
The short answer is yes, however, you will need to do poses that relax the body and mind. Studies have shown that people suffering from insomnia who added yoga to their daily routine fell asleep faster, slept for longer and had better sleep quality.
Of course, it’s important to be aware that not all yoga is appropriate for bedtime. Some poses are focussed on energizing the body and may have the opposite effect on helping you sleep. It’s also important to listen to your body — if you ever feel uncomfortable or like you’re over-exerting your body during these stretches, stop immediately.
