Holistic Health Retreat: Yoga for Blissful Sleep

With Parvati Dufour

Attend this therapeutic weekend program as a residential retreat or come as a day guest.

Topics will include:

  • Mechanics of sleep (REM and NonRem), sleep cycles and circadian rhythm
  • Benefits of sleep and consequences of inefficient sleep
  • Practical remedies to aid sleep (including night routine)
  • 3 levels of relaxation (physical, mental and spiritual)

During this retreat, you will learn how to restore deep, rejuvenating sleep with yoga practices, and how to achieve a deep sense of peace and well-being by integrating breath, body, and mind. Learn and experience time-tested practices of yogic principles—highly effective and easy to learn regardless of your experience in yoga. Gain diet and lifestyle tips from the ancient healing science of Ayurveda. Join us for Hatha yoga classes, breathwork, meditation, healthy vegetarian meals, and educational workshops in a supportive spiritual community at the LA Sivananda Yoga Center. Empower yourself by creating a practical and holistic daily wellness routine.

This is a program of the Sivananda Institute of Health & Yoga. It offers guidance from the 5 Points of Yoga in the Sivananda tradition and the 4 Paths of Yoga.

Includes a 90-minute personal health review prior to the program (in person or via Zoom) and one-on-one mini-consultations each day. Followups possible.
