Banyen's Description: 

Learn simple yoga techniques—poses, meditations, and breathwork—to sleep better and longer, from master yoga teacher trainer and author, Mark Stephens.

As modern science unravels some of the mysteries of our sleeping, dreaming, and waking states, age-old yoga practices are helping us to enjoy better sleep, clearer minds, and healthier bodies. Over 65 percent of U.S. adults are sleep deprived. Sleep deprivation causes and worsens many ailments, including stress, heart conditions, high blood pressure, obesity, and depression.

This book provides easy-to-do and effective yoga activities—including postural sequences, breathing exercises, and meditation tools—for better quality and quantity sleep across the life cycle from childhood to older age. Long-time yoga teacher trainer and best-selling author Mark Stephens integrates the ancient wisdom of yoga with the practical insights, age- and condition-specific sequences, and discussions of neuroscience and psychology to offer practical tools for improving sleep--naturally and drug-free.

Finally, a yogic approach to insomnia that integrates yoga and science! Mark Stephens distills the essential insights of neuroscience, psychology, and the yoga tradition to better understand the nature of sleep and how to improve sleep using yoga rather than pharmaceutical drugs and narrow behaviorist techniques. With chapters on yoga for specific conditions—including stress, anxiety, and depression—and for different ages, this book offers an invaluable resource for anyone interested in better sleep and a healthier life.” —Diana Alstad, coauthor, with Joel Kramer, of The Passionate Mind Revisited
