Nearly a quarter of people in the UK struggle to fall asleep every single night and more than half struggle to get to sleep once or twice a week.
So, do you…
- Find it hard to fall asleep?
- Or perhaps you wake up throughout the night?
- Or maybe you sleep long but wake up lethargic?
If you fall into one of these categories then this Yoga Therapy for Sleep workshop can improve your sleep and get you back to feeling human again. As let’s face it, when we haven’t had enough sleep we not only run on reserves but, and especially if it’s chronic, we can feel as if we’re on a different planet from everyone else!
Using this 5 step yoga-based method for insomnia will not only improve your sleep but give you the tools and knowledge to use as and when you need, and show you a different way of thinking about sleep altogether.
Based mainly on Lisa Sanfilippo’s Sleep Recovery 5 step course, as well as my own various trainings and experience of insomnia, the workshop covers all aspects of sleep and energy imbalance and also covers self shiatsu for sleep and particular yoga nidras – what kind, when and how to use them for maximum benefit.
So if you’d like to improve your sleep and restore your energy then this workshop is for you! You’ll discover a whole toolkit of knowledge and practical stuff to get you sleeping well again.
