Yoga can both energize and calm you

In this workshop we will learn focused yoga techniques to "lift" you during the day
and calm you at night.

  • Practice postures that combat fatigue

  • Develop activities helping to transition from wakefulness to sleepiness

  • Learn to calm a restless or ruminating mind  

Insomnia is complex. Yoga is being explored in clinical trials as a modality to improve sleep—a symptom soother. Diane Thompson is the ongoing yoga instructor in a study administered by the University of Rochester and Providence Health & Services to help people in cancer remission to manage insomnia. With this class, Diane brings her knowledge of yoga postures associated with restfulness to a wider audience.
