INTRODUCTION TO SLEEP RECOVERY: THE FIVE STEP YOGA SOLUTION TO RESTORE YOUR REST
Sleep Recovery is a five step yoga-based method for improving your sleep and deepening your rest, so that you wake up feeling more refreshed and happier each day.
During this two and a half hour online workshop, which offers a mixture of discussion and practice, I will introduce you to the five steps, based on the koshas (layers) of the human body, all from the comfort of your own home.
You will discover your sleep type, according to your Ayurvedic dosha(s), and learn how to work with your natural daily rhythms and become more aware of potential sleep saboteurs that could be impacting on your rest. You will learn how to become better "in tune" with your physical body and will be introduced to a sleep yoga sequence, which helps you to release physical tension in the body before bed.
I will introduce you to the autonomic nervous system and the ways in which we can work with our nervous system, on an energetic level, and move from the over-stimulated fight-flight response to the rest-and-digest calm state throughout the day and before sleep. You will learn powerful breathing practices that can help you step away from the stress response and into a calmer state of being. I will also introduce you to a restorative yoga pose (or two, time permitting!), a practice which allows you to pause and come back into balance throughout the day.
We will look at tools we can use, such as meditation and journalling, that allow us to respectfully acknowledge and digest our thoughts and emotions during the day and before bed, so as to set us up for a peaceful nights sleep. We will have an introductory discussion about thought patterns and brain wave states, and how understanding these can support us to train the brain to make sleep transitions easier.
You will be provided with a workbook to write notes in during the workshop, as well as a sleep quiz to complete beforehand.
If after the workshop you want the opportunity to dive deeper and further explore how the five steps relate to you and your life, you will have the opportunity to book onto my full 5-week course, commending in Jan/Feb 2021. By attending this workshop you will be given a £10 off voucher to use against the course cost. Also, if you go on to book the course, you will receive a FREE copy of the amazing Sleep Recovery book by Lisa Sanfilippo.
The workshop will be held on Zoom and you will be sent the meeting link after booking. I will send out your workbook and sleep quiz a few days before the workshop.
