PROGRAM OVERVIEW

On Day 1 you will learn the principles of Yoga Therapy for Insomnia and Sleep Recovery and begin practicing the tools right away.

Day 2 will involve the science of sleep and the ways in which the Sleep Recovery practices interact with the sleep cycle and daily rhythms, and your teaching practice begins, as well as a case-study approach to working with individuals. 

Day 3 will be an opportunity for you to learn how this information can be taught in an open environment. You will therefore be observing, practising and assisting a live group of people as part of an integrated learning experience.

On days 4 and 5 you will be back with your original group to review and deepen your understanding of the practices and principles and learn how to apply them as a teacher in your work with students and clients. The knowledge assessment will take place on the last day.

 

The course will address the following topics:

  • Trouble getting to sleep
  • Waking in the middle of the night
  • Waking too early
  • Sleeping too short or too long
  • Daytime exhaustion

 

We will discuss the relationship of sleep recovery techniques to issues such as:

  • Adrenal fatigue/ burnout
  • Mom (and Dad) somnia – parental sleeplessness
  • Mental health and sleep problems
  • Identifying post-traumatic insomnia
  • Coping with menopause-related sleep issues
