Yoga for sleep disorders

Struggling to get to sleep/waking up during the night or waking up despite 7 to 8 hours sleep and still feeling sleep deprived?
Discover how yoga and mindfulness can be a useful tool in helping you to find a relaxed state of mind before lights out thereby improving your ability to fall asleep and the quality of sleep you are able to experience.
Sleep is vital to our nervous system – during sleep the body repairs and recovers from the onslaughts of everyday life.
Learn the science behind sleep in this deeply tranquil practice. Find freedom in the body and mind to fully relax and submerge into a state of wholeness. Find peace through the power of the breath and mantra where the over active mind is encouraged to soften, slow down and let go.

Take away a home practice to undertake each evening before sleep and learn other techniques during the workshop to take home and explore. Included in the workshop fee is a 2.5 ml sample of doTERRA lavender.
Lavender has been used and cherished for centuries for its unmistakable aroma and myriad benefits. In ancient times, the Egyptians and Romans used Lavender for bathing, relaxation, cooking, and as a perfume; it is widely used for its calming and relaxing qualities which continue to be Lavender’s most notable qualities. Lavender is frequently used to reduce the appearance of skin imperfections. Add to bath water to soak away stress or apply to the temples and the back of the neck. Add a few drops of Lavender to pillows, bedding, or bottoms of feet to promote a restful night’s sleep. Due to Lavender’s versatile properties, it is considered the must-have oil to have on hand at all times.
