YOGA FOR SLEEP RECOVERY
Sleep recovery is a 5 step yoga-based method for improving your sleep, deepening your rest and waking up happier every day.
We work both within nature, and our own nature, we bring our habits into balance and sleep deeper and wake more refreshed.
Align with the natural cycles of day and night.
Know your sleep type- a constitutional type that helps you to understand what you need to get into balance.
Move through the 5 steps
REPAIR YOUR BODY
Learn to pull tension out of your body so you can curl up and sleep deeply. Use the sleep tracker to banish the sleep saboteurs you may not realise are getting in your way, and discover your personal sleep type to get your best rest.
REPLENISH YOUR ENERGY
Work with, not against, the circadian rhythms through Sleep Recovery’s sustainable energy tools: putting energy back on the grid when you’re tired during the day, and learn to use your manage your nervous system out of the stress response, and into the relaxation response.
RECLAIM YOUR MIND
Don’t try to switch your mind ‘off’ instead give it a place to rest, with mental digestion, mindfulness and other tools that enable your mind to slow down, find a place to put all the thoughts and come to rest more deeply.
RESTORE EMOTIONAL BALANCE
When life hands you challenges, changes and curveballs, your sleep may naturally suffer. From breakups to bereavements to changing roles and responsibilities, use powerful techniques to help you work-through what’s happening so you can get some rest.
SLEEP RECOVERY TRAINING
WEEKLY ONLINE CLASSES
FIVE WEEK COURSE
Yoga Therapy for Insomnia & Sleep Recovery (40 hours approx.)
This is the teacher training that brings Yoga Therapy for Insomnia and Sleep Recovery to life. Live Online, and drawing from both Sleep Recovery + Yoga Therapy for Insomnia and Sleep Recovery, plus an online learning platform and detailed training manual, this course provides both the theoretical and practical training necessary to teach yoga classes, courses and one to ones for those experiencing sleep problems. Sessions will include asana, pranayama, meditation, marma points, and consultation on healthy sleep habits. You will learn to tailor what you offer to individual needs and to work with different body-mind sleep ‘types.’The emphasis of the course is on supporting healthy sleep through appropriate holistic yoga practices. There will be opportunities for teaching practice, as well as an assessment on the final day.
Each day will include a practice of the techniques being learnt, including asana (hatha and restorative), pranayama, meditation, and more so that you have direct experience of all the practices that you are offering to others. We will follow the sleep-wake guidance we will give to others in how we approach the training day. Many who take the course notice that their sleep improves whether they are ‘insomniac’ or not!
At the end of the course you will be equipped to teach multi-week Sleep Recovery courses. If you are already qualified as a yoga teacher, you will receive a Yoga Therapy for Insomnia & Sleep Recovery Certificate and will be eligible for listing in the online directory. This is the time!
