Yoga for Better Sleep

30.00 1 hour

The better breathing habits, attention and mindfulness that come with any regular yoga practise make for better sleep. Why? Because you learn to focus more on the flow of your breath as it moves in and out with the vinyāsa [flow] of your practise — more breath, more flow = less worry and anxiety.

This particular Indri Yoga class is an hour-long lesson with extra attention on your breath; a beginning meditation taking the mantra, So Hum; and asanas [postures] that are gentle and easy to practise just before bedtime, including a longer, guided Savasana [Corpse Pose.]
