Sleepology and Inner Reprogramming YTT 100

With Anandi Alison Francis

March 3 - 13, 2021

This 100-hour residential training course at Anand Prakash Ashram in Rishikesh, India, offers a unique opportunity to become a Sleepologist as well as learn to lead Inner Reprogramming Yoga classes. Over one third of the population suffer from sleep problems and it’s becoming a modern epidemic. Many people are looking for alternatives to sleep medication and turning to holistic treatments.

Anandi, The Sleep Guru (Alison Francis) suffered for many years herself until she started her journey with Akhanda Yoga and Vishva-ji in India.  She soon discovered that a sleep issue is an imbalance and can usually be healed with Yoga and Ayurveda.  However, on Anandi’s journey she discovered that healing a sleep problem is a matter of taking the right steps in the right order and as a result she designed her methodology, Sleepology®

Sleepology® is made up of five principles and three sub principles within each principle. The Sleeplogist is able to consult with clients who are exhausted, stressed and not sleeping well.  They’ll have the tools to identify imbalances and make recommendations.

The Sleepologist will also be able to offer classes based on the ‘mind’ principle of Sleepology®.  The mind principle embraces Akhanda Yoga’s Inner Reprogramming class and the five principles of prana to calm the mind before moving onto the next Sleepology® Principle.

This course is ideal for experienced Yoga teachers, therapists, life coaches who are seeking to specialise in the rapidly growing sleep market using the principles of Sleepology®.

Teachers will get an accredited Sleepology® diploma together with an Akhanda certificate for 100+ CEU hours (90 contact hours). This course can be used to build towards our 1000-hour Master Teacher designation.
