SLEEP WORKSHOP FAQ
Why is good sleep important?
Sleep is such an important part of health, yet so many people struggle to get enough of it. Adequate, good quality sleep not only helps with mental and physical recovery, it has also been linked to better metabolism, immunity, mental health, skin health, digestive health, and reduced risk of heart disease and diabetes.
Why do I need a sleep routine?
Our mind and body is stimulated almost 24 hours a day by the lights and sounds of the modern world. These environments allow us to connect with others but may in turn make us disconnected from ourselves. Couple this with juggling work, family, a personal life and a social life, and its no wonder your mind struggles to ‘wind down’ at the end of the day.
Having a sleep routine or ‘rituals’ can help regulate your body and circadian rhythm to optimise rest. This means changing your routines throughout the day so your mind and body are primed for rest at bedtime (hint: that fifth coffee is
What is Yoga Nidra?
Yoga Nidra is a traditional meditative practice that explores the space between awake consciousness and deep sleep. That suspension in time when you’ve drifted off but are still conscious enough to subtly notice your surroundings.
In a Yoga Nidra practice, you are guided to relax and rest completely, both physically and mentally, with ‘conscious sleep’. The practice is scientifically proven to help in the treatment of conditions such as depression, anxiety, insomnia and PTSD. This is due to its ability to promote deep relaxation by stimulating the release of dopamine, as well as slow down and connect the prefrontal cortex, cerebellum and subcortex parts of the brain. It has been shown that 30 minutes of a Yoga Nidra practice is equivalent to 4 hours’ sleep for the brain!
I have a chronic sleep condition. Will this workshop help?
While the Sleep Hygiene Workshop can assist with common sleep hygiene-related issues, chronic sleep conditions require more specific medical treatment. If you have a medically diagnosed sleep disorder like sleep apnoea, insomnia, restless leg syndrome or narcolepsy, it is highly recommended you speak to your doctor to discuss the best treatment options (e.g. referral to a sleep specialist or clinical psychologist).
