Learn effective yoga practices to help people sleep better: together we can reverse the rising tide of insomnia that has swept through our culture. You’ll gain the knowledge and practices that will enable you to teach Sleep Recovery yoga classes, courses and one-to-ones to help relieve insomnia and help people get their best possible sleep. The Sleep Recovery 5 Steps are specific and holistic: including simple asana, pranayama, meditation, mantra, marma points that are accessible to all. You’ll also learn how to consult with students and clients to discover their Sleep Type, and promote healthier sleep habits, getting to the roots of their sleeplessness. You'll assess and address the 5 layers of the physical, energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of Sleep Recovery.
On Day 1 you will learn the principles of Yoga Therapy for Insomnia and Sleep Recovery.
We will then take this into a weekend workshop where you will observe the teaching of the key components of the course and classes in a two day intensive format. Days 2 and 3 will be an opportunity for you to learn how this information can be taught in an open environment. You will therefore be observing, practising and assisting a live group of people as part of an integrated learning experience.
On days 4 and 5 you will be back with your original group to review and deepen your understanding of the practices and principles and learn how to apply them as a teacher in your work with students and clients. The knowledge assessment will take place on the last day.
The course will address the following topics:
• Trouble getting to sleep
• Waking in the middle of the night
• Waking too early
• Sleeping too short or too long
• Daytime exhaustion
We will discuss the relationship of sleep recovery techniques to issues such as:
• Adrenal fatigue/ burnout
• Mom (and Dad)somnia – parental sleeplessness
• Mental health and sleep problems
• Identifying post-traumatic insomnia
• Coping with menopause-related sleep issues
Lisa Sanfilippo (MA, MSc, BSc), a senior yoga teacher and qualified psychotherapist, pioneered yoga for sleep recovery and the five-layered method, teaching this approach widely for more than a decade. She trains professionals (yoga teachers, therapists and health providers) with Yogacampus, and previously with the Minded Institute. Lisa teaches on both the Triyoga Teacher Training Course and Yogacampus Yoga Therapy Diploma in London. Her two books are: Yoga Therapy for Insomnia and Sleep Recovery (Singing Dragon, 2019) and the forthcoming Sleep Recovery (Bloomsbury, 2020) and she co-authored the Insomnia chapter, with Dr Sat Bir Khalsa, in Yoga for Mental Health (K. Birch & H. Mason, Handspring, 2018).
Lisa aims to teach in an interactive, engaging, and lighthearted way, to inspire you to learn deeply and serve others with clarity, passion and compassion.
Training is open to yoga teachers (200/500 hours), yoga therapists, and trainees in both, as well as professionals in other fields, who wish to learn the principles and practices, and operate within their own scope of practice.
