Whether you suffer from insomnia, a restless sleeping pattern, or you just need an afternoon of rest, you will benefit from this simple, effective practice. Explore yogic techniques for relaxation and mindfulness and learn simple yogic thought and method that can be practiced at home to reset your nervous system and focus your mind. The poses, breath work and awareness practices we cover are all triggers for the parasympathetic nervouse system - the part of the the sutonomic nervouse system responsible for bringing you into “rest and digest” mode. The parasympathetic nervous system releases feel-good hormones into your system, regulating the amount of adrenaline moving through you and sending signals to the body that it's safe to relax and drop into unguarded rest.
During the session you will learn why each of the practices helps to calm you down and prepare you for sleep, and you will tae home a handout which details the most effective practices to take home and incorporate into your daily routine.
Yoga is a practice intended to bring you into balance, and when you are balanced you can rest and sleep well.
