Yoga for Sleep

Do you have trouble falling and staying asleep? Do you wake in the middle of the night? Trouble falling back to sleep? Do you wake feeling tired?

We all love a good night’s sleep after a long day, and we spend one third of our lives asleep!

Better sleep is the biggest contributor to living better.  For many, sleep can be disrupted and 1 in every 3 people in the UK are affected by insomnia, leaving some having difficulty in falling asleep, staying asleep, waking in the night and not feeling fully rested after a night’s sleep.

Yoga can help to alleviate these issues to improve sleep and provide better rest, by calming your nervous system, releasing any held tension in your body and slowing down your breathing, allowing your whole body and mind to rebalance and support regular and restful sleep patterns.

Having trained in Yoga Therapy for Insomnia and Sleep Recovery with the UKs leading Yoga for Insomnia expert, Lisa Sanfilippo, I can offer Yoga for Sleep courses and workshops to help overcome sleep difficulties and support healthy sleep.
