I hope you enjoy watching this talk I did live on Facebook last month. Hear me chat about yoga and insomnia, my own experiences of insomnia and how yoga helped me. I also cover some of the current research into yoga and insomnia. There are a few questions that the audience asks towards the end which you can follow in the comments.
Have you ever had trouble sleeping? I hear you! Over half the population suffer from insomnia at some point in their life and that includes me. At the age of 11 insomnia hit me full force and it was intense! With constant nights spent tossing and turning whilst stressing about the daylight hours fast approaching. The fatigue, anxiety and fear which accompanies insomnia are all too familiar to me. It was by pure luck that I discovered meditation and yoga and got myself back on track. My hope it is that others watching will be inspired to try yoga. Yoga really has a clever way of bypassing the cycle of fear, anxiety and fatigue that insomnia creates. I think yoga and insomnia are the perfect partners so have a listen to find out why.
