We all know that sleep is a fundamental human process which is necessary for healthy functioning of our body and mind. Healthy sleep allows our bodies to enter into a regenerative and restorative state. Our bodies recover from whatever stresses and strains we have experienced over the course of the day.

Despite being central to health and vitality, our modern world is suffering from mass sleep deprivation. While experts recommend that we get 7-8 hours of sleep per night many of take far less. With late nights and early mornings we are burning the candle at both ends.

Our system builds up toxic sleep debt and over time this takes its toll on our bodies – sapping us of our health, our passion and our vitality. Most of us cover up our chronic sleep deprivation by abusing stimulants like caffeine. While few cups of coffee can certainly give us a much needed boost every once and awhile, when it becomes our crutch to get through the day, it’s no longer a healthful behavior that will nourish us.

Our biology is not set up to be well adjusted to our modern way of life. So many of us are suffering from insomnia and poor sleep because our way of life co-opts our natural stress response, amplifies it and never really allows it to turn off again. The fight or flight response that kept our ancestors alive and well in dangerous situations becomes overstimulated – each new stress throughout the day pumps out more adrenaline and more cortisol into our systems which in the long run, exhaust us.

As we lie to down to go to sleep at night, our central nervous system is still jacked up on high alert from the accumulated stress throughout the day. As we try to drift off we may find our thoughts racing, our worries looming large and the restful sleep which we so desperately need eludes us.

What sleep we do manage to get can be fitful and we can wake up feeling like we have just gone ten rounds with a heavyweight boxer, having to do it all again. Our bodies simply never get a chance to recover.

It doesn’t have to be this way however. Here at NirvanaFitness®, we have developed an innovative workout strategy that combines the best available scientific evidence with elements of yoga, breath-work and audio therapy.

The cutting-edge concepts allow practitioners to alter their physiology by shutting off the fight or flight response and activating the rest and digest response instead. By changing your cellular chemistry and balancing the levels of oxygen in your body and calming down hyperactive nervous system responses, you will experience a sense of restful calm like never before.

The gentle movements will help to tone and shape your physical body, while the focused breath work and soothing sounds will guide your mental well-being to new unexplored heights.

The benefits of a good night’s sleep are immense; it is after all where we spend approximately one third of our lives. Shutting off your overstimulated fight or flight response is the key to finally getting a good night’s sleep.

In combination with the NirvanaFitness's breath training you will ensure that you practice correct breathing while you sleep allowing you to awake fresh, full of vibrant energy and ready to take on whatever the day has in store for you.
