    I do the shoulder stand for 30 minutes everyday and so far it hasn’t helped with insomnia. I wish it did. If anything I feel energized after 10-30 min. in this pose. I’m only 73 so I can work on trying it for insomnia a few more years till the big sleep. Whatever that is. I used the floor for this but I find a bed more comfortable with the same effect AFAIK using the ss.

    For better form, and in order not to harm the ligaments of the thumb, the thumb should be in line with the other fingers along the back. Also, for more support, the elbows can rest on the blanket, in other words the blanket should be a platform for the upper arm.
