WHAT SHOULD BE THE SLEEPING POSITION ACCORDING TO BREATHING SCIENCE( SWARA YOGA)?PRANAYAMA-27


SIGNIFICANCE OF THE SLEEPING POSITION;-

07 FACTS;-

1-Sleep is an equally essential to air, water, and food. Unfortunately, most of us simply do not get enough of it.Researchers are telling us that sleeping less than six hours per night can actually shut down some genes, that play a key role in the body’s process of self-repair.

2-Sleep is necessary for us to clear the toxin called beta-amyloid and tau proteins( abundant in neurons of the central nervous system in the brain. Study suggests that sleep helps restore the brain by flushing out toxins that build up during waking hours.

3-Improper sleeping position can cause of back pain, neck pain,stomach troubles etc. Sleep helps our brains sort out, reorder and make sense of all the information it consumes during the day.

4-Sleep plays a significant role in brain development. It is impossible to overcome sleep deprivation through any

other recovery method.

5-Sleeping in the same position night after night can

itself create pain in neck and shoulder. One position all night is also not good for blood circulation.We need to

change our positions, at least three to five times per night.

6-Yoga tells us that you should sleep on the left side of your body for 50% of your sleeping time

and rest of the time you should change your position. For proper sleep, you must choose a mattress that isn’t

too hard or too soft.

7-Something that conforms to your body without creating

pressure points works best. And surrounding yourself with multiple pillows usually helps. You

can use full-length body pillow between your knees. Getting comfortable when you sleep is important because a lack of sleep can cause joint inflammation and lowers

your pain threshold. It’s important to use a pillow to keep your head in a neutral position, so your head

won’t drop and affect your posture.

WHAT ARE THE SLEEPING CYCLES?-

04 FACTS;-

1-There are five distinct phases of sleep. We pass from wakefulness through the sleep phases in a very orderly

pattern. One sleep cycle takes about 90 to 120 minutes, thus for an average sleep time of eight hours, there

will be a four to five complete sleep cycles.

2-The sleep cycle begins with four-stages of non-rapid eye

movement (Non-REM) sleep. After completing the first

stages, instead of continue to fifth REM sleep the four fourth stages quickly reversed and then

followed by REM sleep.

3-The REM sleep will occur roughly after 90 minutes of

falling asleep,and it will last only for about 10 minutes. The steps of sleep are: Stages 1, 2, 3, 4, and REM.

Stage 4 is actually the deepest period of sleep. If you wake up out of stage 4, you are likely to be

disoriented, groggy(faint)and even have a headache. After REM sleep, the whole cycle begins again. The brain is very active during REM sleep.

4-REM sleep is when we do most of our dreaming.

We are fascinated by dreaming.

WHAT ARE THE NORMAL SLEEPING POSITIONS?

02 FACTS;-

1-There are four basic sleeping positions: left-side, right-side, on-back and on-stomach. About sixty percent of Americans sleep on their side. Only 14% sleep on their

back and 16% on their stomach. Which way is best? Every position have their own advantages and

disadvantages.

2-Sleeping in the same position night after night creates problems. Consistently compressing the body on one side or stretching another side over time can create an

imbalance and result in pain in that area. To avoid pains, We need to change our sleeping positions.
