2.26.20 // Winter is for Rest - Sleep Like a Bear with Taylor McNair // 6:30-8:30
Winter is a time for all mammals, including us, to rest and restore. In our modern lives, however, we have become disconnected from our natural and biological rhythms and imperatives for rest and recovery. In this class, we'll discuss the importance of sleep for health and wellness. How sleep and lack of it can affect our bodies and brains. Emerging concepts of the role of Vitamin D in sleep, and some of the important health issues that could be sabotaging your ability to actually benefit from the sleep you're getting. You'll leave with simple and easy to implement strategies and tips to improve your sleep, calm your nervous system, as well as an understanding of different types of pillows and mattresses. We'll demonstrate the best sleeping positions for side, back, and even tummy sleepers, as well as strategies for ailments like GERD and apnea.
