The yoga is beneficial for the overall health because it reduces the blood pressure, improves the memory and relieves the stress. The following positions can be done on the bed which will ease the muscles and relieves the stress. It is very important to know a great stretch before you begin practicing yoga. Consult a doctor before you start these positions.

*Mindful meditation*

This exercise is excellent for people who want to relax before going to sleep. Sit comfortably and cross the legs. Relax the arms and strengthen to lengthen the spine. Inhale three times and focus on breathing.

*Forward bend*

You should sit on the bed and then, fold your body in a slow manner and move the fingertips to the toes.  If it is possible, reach the feet trying to touch the ankles, shins and thighs. Deepen the stretch with breathing out.

*Child’s pose*

Kneel on the bed and place the toes behind you. Spread the knees at hips width. Lean gradually downward until you are lying in the middle of your thighs. Keep the position as much as you can.

*Winding down twist*

Sit on the bed and cross the legs. Bend the body to the left and rotate the head to look over the left shoulder. Get back in the start position and take a deep breath. Do the same on the other side. This is great for the spine and upper body.

*Reclining goddess*

Lie flat on the bed and bend the knees. Place the soles near each other and place your hands by the body. If you feel cramping or strain, put pillows under the knees.
