How Yoga Can Help Insomnia

The Canadian Yoga Alliance has been active since 2004 with a growing membership of over 2000 Canadian yoga teachers.

Dealing with a chronic condition such as arthritis can be stressful, which may lead to insomnia. You could do a more active practice in the morning (such as Vinyasa yoga, or an active Hatha class). Then, you could do a gentle Hatha or Yin yoga class in the evening. This will relax your body and allow you to unwind from the day. You can even do certain yoga poses in the bed, such as child's pose. If you're experiencing sleep problems such as insomnia, you may also want to talk to a local sleep specialist.

If you have arthritis and are interested in doing yoga, start by talking to your local family physician. They can help you choose a safe and effective type of exercise to benefit your arthritis.
