Stress, anxiety and insomnia are often part of the same vicious circle. They feed into one another in a seemingly incessant loop. Stress and anxiety cause sleeping problems, and new research suggests sleep deprivation and chronic insomnia can intensify states of anxiety.

For many of us, tossing, turning and watching the clock when we can’t sleep for a night or two is a frustrating but rare occurrence. But for some of us, a restless night is routine!

So how do we break this vicious circle? How can we reduce the effects of stress and anxiety and enjoy a long and restful night of sleep? How can we go back to feeling refreshed and clear-headed?

Besides visiting a physician, mental health professional or a sleep disorder clinic, we can also aid our recovery with the practice of yoga, breathwork and meditation.

national survey found that over 55% of people who did yoga found that it helped them get better sleep. Over 85% said yoga helped reduce stress.

Yoga is a gentle and restorative way to wind down your day and it can help you to deal with the effects of stress and anxiety methodically and safely.

During this three hours long workshop, you will learn a series of tools which can be seen as a complementary addition to your existing treatments or a stand-alone tool to help bring some tranquillity to your nights.

This workshop is targeted at anyone who has an existing diagnosis of mild to moderate anxiety and suffer from insomnia and would like to learn about sleep recovery, or anyone who feels they could benefit from learning useful, simple and safe techniques to support their mental and physical wellbeing.

Senior yoga teacher Laurent Roure studies at the Minded Institute, a specialist centre for yoga therapy for mental health. He also studies meditation with Alexander Filmer Lorch and pranayama and breathwork within the system of Swami Gitananda. He is an accredited teacher with a specialisation in yoga therapy for anxiety and stress.
