Week 1

Yoga

Level 1-2 45 mins

Dim the lights and get cozy, because this class will carry you straight into bed. Welcome some much needed stillness as you become familiar with your breath, and lull yourself into a sleepy state. Ease in with gentle cat/cows and shoulder stretches, unwind with long, easy twists and back-body openers, then allow a sweet guided savasana to send you off to a blissful sleep. Props Needed: Two blankets or towels. Props Suggested: A block.

Yoga

Level 1-2 45 mins

If you aren't used to sitting in relaxation, it's going to require some reprogramming. Today's practice will help you tune your nervous system and train your body to prepare for sleep. Melt into relaxing poses like puppy stretch, supported lunges and baddha konasana, allowing gravity to take on all the effort. You'll practice a short pranayama before surrendering into a final, sleep-inducing savasana. Props Needed: Two blankets or towels and a block. Props Suggested: A bolster.

Yoga

Level 1-2 45 mins

Just when you thought things couldn't get any more relaxing, comes a practice that's done almost entirely on your back. These restful postures will help you down-regulate your nervous system to prepare for a deeply restorative sleep. Begin with a prop-supported downward dog, then sink into effortless supine postures like baddha konasana with legs up the wall. You'll finish with a cooling, calming breath technique, then drift toward sweet dreams in savasana.
