Description

 

 Tired of counting sheep? Notice that your mind always seems to "switch on" rather than "switch off" when you get into bed? Tired of being tired? We all have periods where we struggle to sleep well. In fact, increasingly people are struggling with ongoing issues around sleep deprivation.

This workshop looks at how yoga and meditation techniques can assist you to "unwind" from your day and move the body and mind into a more relaxed state for sleep. We will use:

  • Restorative yoga postures to settle the nervous system and promote deep rest
  • Pranayama (breathing) techniques to bring on the relaxation response - great for when you cant get off to sleep or wake during the night
  • Meditation practices to reduce mental chatter, stress and anxiety

The workshop will include discussion, practice and take home information of practices and techniques. Please ensure you wear loose clothing. No yoga or meditation experience required.

When: Saturday 18th August 2012

Time: 1pm - 4pm

Where: Just Be Yoga and Meditation Studio - 25 Woods Street, Beaconsfield, 3807
