Join Yoga Journal Influencers Jacqueline Smyth and Lauren Eckstrom for an evening ritual to designed to prepare you for a better night’s sleep. Smyth offers a coaching exercise, encouraging you to fully plan your next day's schedule, setting clear, precise times for each task to help you get ahead of the rush and overwhelm and clear your mind for better rest. Next, Eckstrom will guide you through Sama Vrtti pranayama, or “even balanced breathing,” to settle your mind and calm your body before settling into a supported Savasana to soothe your heart and create a felt sense of wellbeing before bed.
