With Swami Sivasankariananda
Next to breathing, sleep is the greatest biological necessity. Yet 35% of adults in the US are having trouble sleeping—and suffering the debilitating consequences. The World Health Organization has declared a sleep loss epidemic throughout industrialized nations.
The hours of sleep necessary depend on your physical and mental capacity for recuperating fatigue.
In this five-session course, we will cover:
- Benefits of sleep
- Neuroscience of sleep
- Consequences of lack of sleep
- Natural rhythms of the body
- Impact of stress
- Effects of caffeine, alcohol and sleeping pills on sleep
Hear teachings from science and yoga. Receive a sleep diary to track your sleep. We will discuss many practical ways to improve your sleep—and change your life. Build a nighttime routine. Ready to send and invitation to Sleep?
