Sleep through Fertility, the Yogi Way

a blog by Tami Quinn, Pulling Down the Moon, August 20, 2010

Last time we wrote a blog on how proper nutrition and some healthy lifestyle changes can assist with insomnia or other sleep disorders. This week we thought we’d share with you a yogi’s perspective on how to get a good night’s rest.

Poor sleep can lead to the disruption of hormones, a weakened immunity, a lower tolerance for stress and even depression.
