Therapists often recommend yoga for people suffering from anxiety disorders thanks to its ground, meditative, and mindful practice. For those who have insomnia tied to worry and anxiety, yoga can be incredibly beneficial. Preliminary studies have found that yoga has a measurable impact on reducing insomnia.
Look for calming, nighttime focused yoga videos to begin your practice. Avoid vigorous cardio yoga routines, unless they are part of your early morning exercise. Focus more on the breathing and mindfulness than getting the poses precisely right, as it is the meditative aspect that can play a large role in reducing insomnia symptoms.
