For this episode focusing on getting a quality nights sleep, we were joined by Alison Francis, better known as Anandi or The Sleep Guru. She is a qualified yoga instructor under Georg Feuerstein, a graduate of the Anthony Robbins University, an NLP practioner & hynopherapist and a qualified Primordial Sound Meditation Instructor under Deepak Chopra. Anandi suffered from insomnia for nearly 15 years until she discovered the power of the breath which she credits with healing her. She now runs workshops, retreats and online programmes for those suffering with sleep disorders, stress and anxiety.
During a show packed with information, The Sleep Guru gives advice on how to meditate successfully, how to overcome insomnia and how to create a sleep haven, plus tells us how Sting was responsible for uncovering her spiritual side! At the end of the interview I leave you with my top seven tips on optimising your sleep, then I hand over to my yoga and mediation instructor, Amy Fitta, to close the show with a Yoga Nidra meditation aimed at helping you get that vital, quality rest.
The book recommended by the Sleep Guru during the show is available through the following links:
