It seems logical that the evening yoga practice should also differ in content from the morning one – it should not contain power forms, intense dynamic vinyasas. At first glance, it may seem that all yoga is aimed solely at relaxation. In fact, there are many asanas that not only do not calm, but vice versa – they include the sympathetic section of the nervous system, which is responsible for stimulating cardiac activity and enhancing metabolic processes. The task of the evening class is to slow us down, set us up for a sound sleep, switch us from the outside world to internal processes. Therefore, in yoga before going to bed, we exclude work for “wear and tear” and purposefully relieve stress.

How to prepare for practice

The time for classes should be chosen, focusing on your daily routine. It is advisable to perform the practice an hour or half an hour before bedtime, stimulating the production of the “sleepy” hormone – melatonin.
Evening yoga asanas can be performed in a special atmosphere. For example, light incense or aroma candles, close the curtains, turn on pleasant measured music. We recommend that you ventilate the room beforehand so that it is fresh and comfortable.
Do not rush to the mat if you have just had dinner – you should do it no earlier than an hour and a half after eating.
