Average customer review: (1 customer reviews)Product DescriptionWe’re in the midst of an epidemic of sleeplessness, with half of adults struggling with insomnia and a host of health risks associated with inadequate rest and sleep. Yet we’re all aware of the benefits of good sleep, from vibrant health to better productivity to happier relationships, and more. On The Yoga of Sleep, Dr. Rubin Naiman integrates effective sleep science with time-honored sacred perspectives to help us reclaim the full potential of our nightly journeys.
This practical two-CD course begins with a discussion of “the lost art of sleep,” examining common disorders and how to promote natural, healthy sleep. Dr. Naiman shares techniques for managing agitated minds, letting go at day’s end, optimizing your “sleep setting” (or environment), and more. We then join him for five guided practices including- Rituals and rhythms-a contemplation on the essential elements of healthy sleep- A mindful surrender to sleep-meditation, relaxation, and hypnotic techniques for a smooth transition to sleep – Coming to-the sacred art of awakening
Dr. Andrew Weil has called his colleague Dr. Naiman a true pioneer in integrative sleep and dream medicine. On The Yoga of Sleep, Dr. Naiman invites us to open the “gracious gift” each night presents and return to the deep serenity that lives at our core.

Host Dr. Rubin Naiman offers simple techniques for calming one’s mind, unwinding at the end of the day, optimizing the environment in which one sleeps, and more. The CDs include rituals and rhythms offering virtually hypnotic methods to aid a smooth transition to sleep, the value of meditation and relaxation in encouraging a mindful surrender to sleep, and even the equally sacred art of awakening. A wonderful exploration into the benefits of yoga to combat insomnia and stilted sleep patterns, The Yoga of Sleep is highly recommended for anyone with sleep problems – particularly as a first choice before ingesting medications that dull the senses and may interfere with getting a good night’s rest. 2 CDs, 2 hours.
