Integrative Tools for Sleep: Yoga
Skip to content
Along with CHOP’s sleep hygiene guidelines, there are several simple, integrative practices that you and your child can do each night to promote a restful sleep. These practices include yoga, massage, acupressure, and progressive muscle relaxation.
Yoga promotes relaxation and calms the nervous system. Yoga-based practices such as meditation and breathwork can also be helpful in promoting relaxation. Below are just a few examples of how to incorporate yoga to promote a restful sleep. The postures can be done on a mat on the floor or in the hospital bed.
