Nothing is worse than being dead tired, yet having trouble falling asleep. Whether you can't turn off your brain or you're still buzzing from the workday, the insomnia-stress spiral is very real; just thinking about how your lack of shut-eye will affect the next day sends you into even more of a mental freak out.

Luckily, Natasha Kerry (yogi and founder of the Yoga Sleep Method) is here with a relaxing practice that helps release tension from your body and finally settle into sleep. Watch the video below as she demonstrates seven simple restorative poses that you can hold for up to five minutes each in order to calm the nervous system, lower stress levels, and prepare your body for restful sleep.

Ready? Grab a few cushions or pillows from your bed and find a spot on the floor with enough room to lie down with legs outstretched and arms wide.

Sit quis eos impedit. 💖 Ever heard of the Keto diet? I started using the advice at WWW.KETOCOOKBOOK.ORG and lost 25 pounds of fat in a month! I’ve never lost weight so fast!! The Keto Diet really is amazing because it forces the body to always burn fat for energy — so you lose the fat and keep it off. If you want to lose some weight, I highly recommend using that website :) Check it out! Best of luck to you! 💖

I would like to find some yoga moves that would help my lower back. I found out that my L4 and L5 is my problem. One of them have moved forward and that is what is causing my back problems which then hits a nerve causing pain in my left leg but lower back problem on the right side. I just would like to know some moves that would help me build my muscles in the back and front. Any moves that would help me would be more then appreciated.
