Ancient practices of yoga and Ayurveda for a restoring sleep.
Discover everything you need to know to rest more and better in a totally natural way.
Sleep is a biological necessity, essential for the proper functioning of the body. However, almost forty percent of the world’s population has difficulty maintaining a healthy sleep rhythm: our eyes refuse to close when we get into bed, we wake up in the middle of the night without being able to go back to sleep or we have strange dreams that keep us from fully resting... And day after day we dose ourselves with coffee to get through the day while a small voice in the back of our head constantly repeats: I want to sleep!
In this book, which integrates the latest scientific research on the principles of sleep and the biology of the night with the ancient wisdom of yoga and Ayurveda, the teacher Zaira Leal offers the keys to a deep and restful rest. In addition to ancient and modern sleep theory, we will find in these pages numerous physical, mental and spiritual practices, as well as very simple ayurvedic and yogic recommendations for different times of the day that will help us not only to sleep peacefully but also to improve our levels of energy and vitality.
