What is Yoga for Sleep Recovery?

Maybe you have been told to practice yoga if you have trouble sleeping. If only it were that simple. There are so many ways to practice yoga these days, the key when balancing sleep is to have an understanding of how, what and when to practice, so we can balance it with our circadian rhythms.

Yoga for Sleep Recovery was founded by Lisa Sanfilippo, a psychotherapist, yoga therapist and author of both Yoga for Sleep Recovery &  Yoga Therapy for Insomnia. Lisa brings 20 plus years of experience and expertise to this work and she has designed a comprehensive, accessible method that any one can do, even if you have never been on a yoga mat in your life.

Sleep Recovery is a 5 step yoga-based method to help you sleep better, manage your energy throughout your day and wake up brighter. Each week we’ll move through the 5 steps of Yoga for Sleep Recovery so by the end of the 5 weeks you have a variety of tools to draw from to help you balance your sleep.


What we will cover

  • STEP 1- REPAIR YOUR BODY: We’ll practice the sleep sequence designed to pull out tension from your body and prepare you for sleep. We’ll discuss sleep saboteurs and sleep types and work with a sleep log so you begin tracking what works for you during the coming weeks.


  • STEP 2- REPLENISH YOUR ENERGY: Learn how to sustainably put energy back on the grid to help you effectively manage your energy flow throughout the day. Discover how to nurture your nervous system out of the stress response and into the relaxation response.


  • STEP 3-RECLAIM YOUR MIND: Learn how to work with your thoughts and busy mind,    with tools to aid mental digestion and mindfulness to help us find a deeper, more settled rest.


  • STEP 4-RESTORE EMOTIONAL BALANCE: Learn how to manage and soothe your emotions,  acknowledging where you are now and how to create more restful sleep when you are gong through emotional times.


  • STEP 5-REAWAKEN HAPPY:  Sometimes lack of sleep can be a wake-up call, to something that needs our attention.  In this last step we’ll reflect back on the weeks and bring together our own personal toolkit, what has worked and what hasn’t, where we may need to focus more. We’ll also look at what brings us joy and find ways to bring back those things in life that light us up.


We’ll be working through the book Sleep Recovery. You can order a copy of the book here. It’s not mandatory for the course, but will be helpful in terns of being able to do some homework and having resources to take away with you.

Sleep Easy Podcast

Following demand from my clients, I’ve introduced a Sleep Easy Podcast which enables you to download the Sleep sequence and use it in the comfort of your own home, at a time that suits you. I’ll talk you through and set you up for a good night’s sleep and then the idea is that you won’t need to listen to it every time, you’ll learn it become familiar with it and you can do it anytime anywhere when you need.
When sleep is disrupted it can be helpful to have a variety of tools to help. In the Yoga for Sleep Recovery Program, based on the work of Lisa Sanfilipo and author of the book Sleep Recovery,  we move through 5 steps to help you recover your sleep. The 5 steps are drawn from the 5 layers of the body in yoga.  In this podcast we focus on Step 1: releasing the physical tension from the body. 
If you want to dive deeper and learn more of the tools to integrate then please do get in touch and I can take you through the Yoga for Sleep Recovery program. Once you become familiar with the practices you can address where you need to focus.

    About Your Tutor

    It was my own experience of having Insomnia triggered by sleep deprivation from my second child and the transition into peri-menopause that lead me to this work. I took my training with Lisa Sanfilipo and the Minded Institute and found that the knowledge and wide variety of tools from the course have been invaluable in helping me get my sleep back on track.
