Do you feel exhausted all the time?
If so, our online four-week Sleep, Rest and Energy course is perfect for you.
The course consists of four online group training sessions on Zoom, from 8 pm to 9.15 pm on Mondays.
In addition... You get two 1-to-1, 15-minute optional personal guidance and support calls (You can take these at any point during the course).
Newcomers get one free month of The Meditation Course, so you can join us and continue to practice your new techniques in a group with my regular students.
There will be opportunities for questions and answers at the beginning and end of the sessions.
The foundation of the training in the course is meditation, but you do not need to have any meditation experience. This course will provide you with a good introduction to meditation. The meditations themselves only last a few minutes. The purpose is to teach them to you, not to provide practice time. If it suits you, you can get a free month of The Meditation Course, my live online group guided meditation course, to practice the meditations.

"I highly recommend Robert's sleep course. It has helped me develop different breathing techniques and the mantras help calm my mind at bedtime and when I wake up in the night. Robert has a wonderful spiritual, calming and reassuring way of teaching and is supportive and willing to explain and help you. I am so pleased I found Robert and his sleep course. I now have more coping skills and tools to chill my mind, body and soul especially at bedtime and when I need to get back to sleep. "

Meditation is a mental practice that involves focusing the mind, cultivating awareness, and promoting relaxation to achieve a state of inner calm and balance.
Meditation can benefit and enhance sleep in several ways:
1. Reduces stress and anxiety: Meditation helps to alleviate stress and anxiety by fostering a sense of relaxation and calmness. By quieting the mind and reducing the effects of stress, it becomes easier to fall asleep and experience better sleep quality.
2. Enhances relaxation: Meditation activates the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for the body's rest and digest functions. This promotes relaxation and helps to counteract the adverse effects of the sympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for the stress response.
3. Improves focus and mindfulness: Meditation cultivates mindfulness and focus, which can help individuals become more aware of their thoughts and emotions. This heightened awareness allows them to recognize sleep-disruptive habits, thoughts, or behaviours and address them more constructively.
4. Regulates sleep patterns: Regular meditation can help regulate sleep patterns by balancing the body's internal clock, or circadian rhythm. This balance can improve sleep quality and duration.
Pranayama is an ancient yogic practice that focuses on breath control and regulation to promote overall well-being, balance, and harmony. It is derived from two Sanskrit words: "prana," which means life force or vital energy, and "ayama," which means extension or control. Pranayama is a key component of yoga, along with asanas (physical postures) and meditation.
Pranayama can enhance and benefit sleep through several mechanisms:

Yoga Nidra, also known as "yogic sleep" or "conscious deep sleep," is a guided meditation technique that promotes deep relaxation and self-awareness. It is a state of consciousness that exists between wakefulness and deep sleep, allowing practitioners to access their subconscious mind while maintaining a sense of wakeful awareness. Yoga Nidra involves following a set of verbal instructions to guide the practitioner through various stages of relaxation, visualization, and self-inquiry.
Yoga Nidra can benefit and enhance sleep in several ways:
1. Deep relaxation: Yoga Nidra induces a state of deep relaxation that affects the physical, mental, and emotional levels. This deep relaxation helps to release tension and stress stored in the body and mind, creating optimal conditions for restorative sleep.
2. Reduces stress and anxiety: By guiding the practitioner through a systematic process of relaxation and self-awareness, Yoga Nidra helps to alleviate stress and anxiety, common factors that contribute to sleep disturbances and poor sleep quality.
3. Balances the nervous system: Yoga Nidra activates the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for rest and digestion. This activation counteracts the stress response initiated by the sympathetic nervous system and promotes relaxation, contributing to better sleep.
4. Cultivates mindfulness: Through the practice of Yoga Nidra, individuals develop greater mindfulness and self-awareness, enabling them to recognize and address sleep-disruptive thoughts, emotions, or habits.
5. Improves sleep quality: Regular practice of Yoga Nidra has been shown to improve sleep quality and duration, as well as reduce insomnia symptoms. This is due in part to the deep relaxation and stress reduction experienced during the practice.
