Sleep Yoga – What is it?

Sound sleeping is a gift, which some people seem to possess more than others. There are many factors that can hinder restful sleep: insomnia, sleep apnea, back and neck pain, jet lag, anxiety, depression, stress or a combination of these common issues.

Regardless of whether you have chronic sleeping issues or have intermittent challenges to restful sleep, there are natural solutions that can help you sleep with greater ease.  It is important to note that some sleeping conditions and some folks will need medical assistance for their individual situations, however, we can all benefit from tips on how to sleep well. One fun way to learn natural sleeping techniques is through yoga class geared towards gentle stretching, breath work and meditation.

What to Expect

Yoga for Sleep will include gentle stretching to open the body and alleviate tight places that have accumulated over the workweek.  It will integrate breath and mindfulness practices that will serve to keep the busy mind focused to receive maximum benefits from the movement.  Props such as supportive pillows will be provided for the movement practice to create ease for the body in restorative, long held comfortable positions.  The last part of class will feature guided meditation practice to release layers of tension in the physical body and relax the mind.  Please bring your yoga mat, blanket, comfy clothes and an open mind!

Note:  There are no changing rooms and we are a fragrance free facility.
