Course Description

There is a sleep crisis in this country.  Insomnia is an epidemic affecting millions of people.  Yoga is a natural solution to the stress and anxiety that feeds insomnia.  Yoga is a perfect antidote to sleeplessness precisely because it is so deeply soothing and relaxing for both the body and the mind.  In this simple yet effective “Yoga for Insomnia” course you will learn how to overcome insomnia with yoga which is designed and taught by Eddie Marashian, one of the top yoga instructors in Los Angeles.  Eddie is an expert at demystifying yoga so that all people can receive the benefits of this ancient healing practice.

In this course you will receive:

  • 4 Motivational talks providing insight, inspiration, food for thought and positive intentions
  • 3 Routines of Yoga poses—AM, PM and Chair (perfect if you are injured, out of shape or stuck at the office)
  • 2 Calming breath exercises
  • 4 Healing, guided meditations
  • 4 Audio sleep-time relaxations
  • 2 Schedules--full and short--depending on the amount of time you can spend each day

I designed this “Yoga for Insomnia” course for anyone who has trouble sleeping.  You don’t have to be flexible or physically fit in order to subscribe to learn how to overcome insomnia with yoga, and complete beginners are most welcome.  If you can't dedicate 1 hour per day, I've also included a short version of the course that will only take 10-20 minutes.  To be successful in this course, all you need is a desire to heal your insomnia and the commitment to follow through.  Here's how it works:

In the full schedule, each day you will:

  • Start with a motivational talk (5 min.)
  • Practice a basic routine of yoga poses to relax your body (15-20 min.)
  • Pause for a centering breath exercise before dinner (10-15 min.)
  • Follow a guided meditation before you get into bed (10 min.)
  • Listen to a sleep-time relaxation as you fall asleep (15-20 min)

In the short schedule, each day you will: 

  • Choose one segment from the full routine to practice (5-15 min)
  • Listen to a sleep-time relaxation as you fall asleep (15-20 min)

You can change your life in 4 weeks!  I believe in your potential to heal.  Are you willing to give yoga a try?  I’ll be right here with you, supporting you each step of the way.



What are the requirements?

  • A yoga mat (or even a large towel)
  • A desire and commitment to change your life for the better
  • A comfortable upright chair
