The Wonders of Yoga Sleep

Wed, 03 Oct 2012

Our fast pace of life and the worries we carry around with us have caused an insomnia epidemic in the UK.

A recent study by the Mental Health Foundation has discovered that two-thirds of us experience problems sleeping, with a third us suffering from chronic insomnia which affects our waking lives, affecting our moods, physical health, relationships and even our careers.

Londoners in particular cope the worst as their pace of life is faster than most of the rest of us.

The inability to have a good night’s sleep is the predominant factor undermining our quality of life.

Sleeping is the latest kind of yoga being increasingly practised in London.

The Special Yoga Centre, Kensal Rise, London, hosts Friday evening classes in yoga nidra, which enables Londoners to relax and sleep. It also enables you to develop a balanced and calm mind during your waking hours.

The super physical yogas, such as, Ashtanga yoga and Bikram yoga have become very fashionable in the UK.

In the birth place of yoga, India, there has always been a preference for gentler yoga styles like pranayama, or breathing exercises, and yoga nidra, the yoga of sleep. Many Indians consider that regular practice of deep relaxation and meditation are the most beneficial things you can undertake to improve your mental health and physical wellbeing.
