$35.00 Why Am I So Tired
Sleep is essential for well-being. Yet nearly one-third of Americans are sleep deprived according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Other studies have linked the lack of sleep to depression, a weaker immune system, memory and cognition issues, as well as obesity, high blood pressure and fatigue. The CDC calls this pervasive lack of sleep a "public health epidemic.”
In this workshop, Yoga Therapist Pamela Stokes Eggleston will draw on the latest yoga and sleep research to review the root causes of sleep deprivation, the effects of insomnia, how lifestyle impacts all of it—and how yoga, meditation, and diet can help.
The workshop will include a personal sleep assessment so participants are more aware of what’s helping and what’s harming their sleep, a gentle movement practice, and Yoga Nidra to promote more restful sleep. Participants will leave with practical tools and know-how to help them get a better night's sleep and move toward better overall health and wellness. Some yoga experience is helpful but not necessary.
The co-op member fee for this workshop is $30. Not a member? Learn more and join today. This workshop will be offered on Zoom. It will also be recorded, and registered students will be able to access the video for two weeks following the live workshop date.
