Sumant: Forward bending asanas relax n soothe you! Backbend exercises pump your energy very much! Go for Yoga Nidra! Fantastic tool!

Vidya: always end ur yoga session with yoga nidra and pranayama with meditaton, u sure will have good sleep!

Prashant: try to listen Naad Dhwani for 5 min b4 sleepn

Saraswati: In bed, read 20 pages or more of any sacred text of your choice (Gita and Bliss Divine by Swami Sivananda) are good choices and then turn off the light and practice self-suggestion Savasana. Make sure you don't eat a few hours before going bed and that you have practiced yoga asanas or gentle exercise and pranayama during the day. Breathe deeply whenever you think about during the day and meditate at least 20 minutes every day. Then you will have a complete yoga practice and eliminate your sleep problems and other problems as well. See More

Praveena: If the mind is chattering away and thats the reason for less sleep then suryanamaskar really helps.Also bhramari helps a lot.

Sarala: I have a suggestion. Iam doing it regularly. Liedown on the bed placing your right hand by your side and left hand palm on your abdomen.Now take a deep breath, hold , count 5 and exhale .Repeat this 3 to 5 times. If possible take a showe...r before going to bed.

Swami Saradananda: Yoga nidra before you go to bed. It relaxes you - and you have a good night's sleep and wake up earlier, feeling more rested!
