It is estimated around a third of the UK population suffer from sleeplessness and rising sharply. Aimed at the over-tired, fatigued, exhausted, menopausal or simply curious, this weekend of studying and snoozing includes experiential practices to explore conditions for restful sleep and creative practices for when sleep is elusive.
A scientific framework investigates why we need sleep, what happens when we don’t get it, rhythms, brain states and the nervous system. We will cover some science, philosophy and psychology of a disturbed mind with bed time story, and lullaby nidra, and experiential embodied practices.
Hopefully the presentations will not send you to sleep but there will be plenty of practices such as pranayama, restorative postures, and sleepy nidras where you might find yourself snoozing. Sleep journal preparation & take home recorded practices will support continued practice.
Yoga United Education aims to create a safe inclusive space to share, be seen and heard using trauma informed based practice.
