Yoga in the evening can help you relax and hopefully help you get a good night's rest.
Thanks for your question. Yoga can help you to relax and can be a component of a treatment plan to treat insomnia. Let me share some helpful tips for better sleep: having a regular bed time; avoiding electronics at least an hour before going to bed (most experts actually advice 2 hours, but that can be hard to do); avoiding caffeinated drinks at least 8 hours before going to bed; having a bedtime routine; daily exercise, yoga included, however, do not exercise right before going to bed. I encourage you to make an appointment with your doctor to figure out the cause of your insomnia and get help implementing a treatment plan.
