Over the last few years I’ve really come to love yoga, specifically going to yoga class once a week. However, sometimes life gets in the way and I can’t always get there.
Now, I have a few yoga DVD’s at home and have used them but there is something about going to a class. Maybe it’s the fact that I can’t just give up, pack it in and call it a day if I get bored or lose focus like I can at home.
I’m also a fan of finding workouts on Pinterest however, I haven’t been so great at actually using the pins that I save. I *always* have great intentions when I pin something but you have to find the time to go back and actually download the workout or recipe if you want to accomplish it.
Recently, I’ve started doing yoga before bed to help me fall asleep. Sometimes I want to spend 20 minutes doing yoga before bed and other times it’s just a quick and easy / feel good going to bed kind of yoga that I want.
5- Minute Yoga Routine for a Good Night’s Sleep
(who doesn’t want a good nights sleep?)
Again, it’s Pinterest for the win! Check out my “Yoga & Stretching” page. PS – I’ve tried very few of them but have great intentions when I pin them 🙂
Have you ever tried a bed time yoga routine?
Yoga in the morning or before bed or BOTH?
What’s your favourite yoga pose? Mine is pigeon pose.

I have a daily wake up yoga session – but I use an app DailyYoga. It explains every pose with video / audio and also has nice music and timing for each session. I’m afraid I don’t have enough discipline if it’s just a Pinterest pic ! 🙂
It’s all about what motivates you.
I was in the habit of doing yoga at night during my marathon training, more out of necessity than preference for time of day, but I really enjoyed it! I need to get back into this habit. Tonight!
I need to make this a daily habit and am trying with this 5 minute routine. Good luck!
What a great idea. I never thought of doing it before bed. But it is a great way to unwind and even meditate. Thanks for sharing this!
I practice the breathing techniques if I’m struggling to get to sleep! I often do a small yoga flow in the house but I much prefer to go to a class! I always seem to push myself some more – and like you said, can’t really back out!
Yup, I do my yoga stretches and rolling before bed! It really does help me sleep
I keep telling myself that I need to be better about practicing yoga on a more regular basis. Taking 5 minutes to do so before bed seems like a very realistic way to be more consistent about it.
My favorite yoga pose is savasana. 🙂 I really need to be more consistent than once every blue moon with yoga. I have an app called Asana Rebel and I have been trying to use it more often.
Love this!! I also feel great satisfaction when going to an actual class but have started
Making it a habit at home even if I just do 10 minutes ( although I don’t feel I am getting a workout more just a stretch but hey better than nothing) I enjoy the feeling of the spinal twist as my fav 🙂
What an awesome idea!! I am totally trying this!!
Thanks for the routine! Gonna give it a try 🙂
