with Pamela Stokes Eggleston, MBA, E-RYT 500, YACEP
April 12 - 26, 2023
Wednesdays: Apr. 12, 19, and 26
In this online workshop, release stress, tension, and overwhelm with Yoga2Sleep, a Yoga therapy workshop designed to support a better quality of sleep. This workshop includes personal assessment, pranayama (breathing exercises), meditation, Restorative Yoga, Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep), and journaling. Yoga2Sleep uses scientific research in combination with ancient, traditional yogic practices to empower you to achieve better sleep for your best life.
Sleep is an integral function of the parasympathetic (rest and digest) nervous system. When we don’t get enough sleep, our bodies, brains, and emotions suffer. There is good evidence that cognitive and/or physiological excitement, associated with sustained sympathetic activation, is one of the underlying causes of insomnia.
A large body of evidence-based research supports Yoga therapy protocols that holistically address insomnia and sleeplessness. The multi-layered approach of Yoga therapy uses scientific research in combination with ancient, traditional yogic practices.
This workshop includes:
- Distinctive combinations of educational and experiential sessions
- Exploration of the koshas and chakras (energetic layers and centers) as they pertain to sleep and insomnia
- Self-Inquiry and self-reflective practices
- Information on why rest and relaxation are vital
- Examination of the gross and subtle aspects of the body, heart, and mind and the interplay with adequate sleep
- Tangible yogic tools to achieve better sleep
Live sessions with Pamela on Wednesdays at 6:30–8:30 pm ET.
You will have access to the video recordings for 8 weeks after the program ends, until June 21, 2023.
In addition, you will have access to recorded Integral Yoga Hatha classes and access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.
