Please note: this event has been cancelled.

As modern science unravels some of the mysteries of our sleeping, dreaming, and waking states, age-old yoga practices are helping us to enjoy better sleep, clearer minds, and healthier bodies. Over 65 percent of U.S. adults are sleep deprived. Sleep deprivation causes and worsens many ailments, including stress, heart conditions, high blood pressure, obesity, and depression. This book provides easy-to-do and effective yoga activities--including postural sequences, breathing exercises, and meditation tools--for better quality and quantity sleep across the life cycle from childhood to older age. In Yoga for Better Sleep, long-time yoga instructor, teacher trainer, and bestselling author Mark Stephens integrates the ancient wisdom of yoga, practical insights, age- and condition-specific sequences, and discussions of neuroscience and psychology to offer tools for improving sleep--naturally and drug-free.

Mark Stephens is a reformed insomniac who once believed that sleeping five to six hours per night was a blessing of the gods. Now a healthy eight-hour-per-night sleeper, Stephens is the author of Teaching Yoga, Yoga Sequencing, Yoga Adjustments, and Yoga Therapy. A yoga practitioner for over twenty-five years, he lives, practices yoga, and writes in Santa Cruz, California.
