From Vajrasana to Adhomukhoveerasana to Suptabadhakonasana, Rujuta's Instagram video featured asanas that help in inducing sleep. Take a look.

It also allows the body to heal and the muscles to recover. However, not getting enough sleep or proper sleep can make us be more stressed, and hence, ruin the energy of the next day as well.

Rujuta further added that these yoga asanas are to be performed before going to bed. She also recommended that they should be performed either on the bed or on a mat of sorts and should not be performed for more than two to three minutes each. These asanas induce sleep and help in de-stressing the body.
