Sundays – June 12 – 26 – 1:00pm – 3:00pm ET
This is a three-class online course taught by Roger Cole on how to use simple, supported yoga postures, breathing, meditation and philosophy, guided by up-to-date science, to fall asleep more easily, fall back to sleep after awakenings, and recover from lost sleep.
The centerpiece of each 2-hour session will be a guided yoga practice aimed explicitly at reaching a deep state of rest, which may include sleep.
Session 1- June 12: How specific asanas release tension, remove fatigue in order to achieve deep rest.
Session 2 – June 19: How to use pranayama to overcome anxiety and switch off the mind.
Session 3 – June 26: How to incorporate meditation to achieve deep, enduring silence, healing and growth.
Roger will introduce every technique with a concise, easy-to-understand explanation, giving you the knowledge and skills to personalize your practice and apply it to your life. No prior yoga experience is required.
Each class will include Q&A time. The course includes a written handout plus recordings of all the classes with access to the recordings until two weeks after the end of the last session.
Roger Cole, Ph.D. is a Stanford-trained sleep research scientist and internationally recognized Iyengar yoga teacher. He has studied and taught the art and science of yoga, deep relaxation and sleep for over forty years.
