Yoga Poses that help You Sleep Better

The most effective way to get a good night's sleep

Can't sleep at night, no matter what you do? Then try doing yoga before you hit the snooze button. Celebrity lifestyle coach and yogapreneur, Grand Master Akshar says, "Practising yoga before your bed time will help you sleep soundly. Yoga helps get rid of sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, sleep anxiety, insomnia, etc." If you can spend even as little as just 5 minutes doing these poses recommended by Akshar, you would score some serious shut-eye. "You can hold each pose for 30 seconds and repeat for 3 sets," advises Akshar.
