“Sleeping patterns vary”.
When I experienced issues with my sleep in 1999, what helped me after a visit to my doctor at that time was yoga and mediation.
All things considered I had to be consistent with yoga and meditation. In essence it made a phenomenal difference to my sleep. Henceforth I was relaxed, slept through the night, and had great awareness of the improvement.
In 2012 during pregnancy my sleep was affected. Following the death of my father and the birth of my son in 2013 my sleep was severely affected and I was unable to keep up with both yoga and meditation which helped me previously.
Once again I was wishing to improve my sleep. It proved to me consistency with both yoga and meditation were key to helping me improve my sleep.
Between 2016 and 2018 I attend two teacher trainings the first being Yoga for Insomnia and the second, Relax and Renew Restorative™.
They have both made a great difference to my sleep. I love sharing aspects of my trainings in my classes.
Along with using both trainings to help with my sleep I also created a night routine, so I had a much more holistic approach to my teaching.
