In this How-To, Movement Therapy Guide and Yoga Teacher Shahada Karim teaches you about the benefits of using a sleep mask in your meditation or yoga practice. This sleep essential can take you to a deeper state of relaxation in more ways than one. Incorporating it into the end of your practice can help you block out any unnecessary distractions so that you can focus on your breath and your movements. Shahada loves using the Lunya Sleep Mask because it completely blocks out light without feeling too heavy allowing her to stay focused on her practice. It's a washable silk sleep mask that doubles as a headband for that post-workout skincare routine. Yeah, you read that right.
