It was just this past weekend that I signed-up for a free trial membership with Yoga Glo and gave it a whirl on Sunday night. I waited until the mice where slumbering and my husband had adjourned to the basement to embrace his lazy boy chair. I set-up my yoga matt, flipped on the fireplace, and then selected the best yoga option which seemed suitable for me.
As I moved into the poses I began to relax and by the time I had moved to the floor poses I began to feel very sleepy. It was in the middle of a body twist in which I let out a very loud yawn and decided to move into goddess pose for just one moment.
An hour later my husband reappeared from his man cave, “Honey?”
He gave me another shake “Honey!?”
“I’m sleeping. Leave me alone.”
“Honey? I thought you were doing yoga?”
I sat-up dazed, confused, and covered in drool.
“I must have fallen asleep in the middle of it. Can you help me up?”
And it is with that I found the miracle cure for insomnia ” Yin Tension” Yoga just before bed. But a word of warning you might just want to do it in bed. It will save you a very long sleepy crawl to your bedroom after your workout.
Have you ever fallen asleep while you were in the middle of an activity?
