“Loved the fact of being able to ask questions and be answered in a clear manner. Also that it was very relaxed and casual. It made it a lot more fun.”
“The classes were great. Taught me to relax better & to stretch properly. I found all the instructions clear and made yoga very enjoyable.”

Here are some responses from Yoga & Sleep workshop participants:
“The Yoga and Sleep Workshop is a ‘must’ for anyone who is having difficult with any aspect of sleeping and for those Yoga Therapists who may have clients who have sleep related problems.
Jennie’s Yoga component of the Workshop gives clear instruction on how to use Yogic practices either, before going to bed or for when you wake in the middle of the night and are unable to go back to sleep.
Carmel has an incredible knowledge of all aspects of sleep dysfunction and how to change patterns of behaviour to help return to a good sleep pattern. We have no idea how much our lack of sleep effects, not only ourselves but others also.
I learnt so much from this course and I know I will be using the information to assist others in the future.
My thanks to both Jennie and Carmel”
Chris Hurditch, Yoga Teacher & Therapist
” I attended the two day workshop in Byron Bay. I would just like to say it was a very exciting weekend .I was only going to attend 1 day but enjoyed it so much I had to back for the second day . The yoga was at a level I could manage well.
The guest speaker Carmel Harrington was excellent. There was so much information re sleep habits. I’m hoping now to sleep better with the knowledge given and the yoga postures. Thank you again for a great weekend . ”
Joy Clark, Nurse & shift worker, Yoga student
“I would highly recommend this workshop to all-young & old- regardless of their experience/knowledge of yoga. The Yoga & Sleep workshop should be included as a unit in all Yoga Therapy training.”
Judy Walker, Yoga Teacher & Therapist
“I thoroughly enjoyed the Yoga and sleep workshop I recently attended in Moss Vale. Jennie Blevins and Dr Carmel Harrington offered a balanced and informative workshop on the importance of sleep and the brain.
As a yoga teacher I thought I knew quite a bit about sleep and yoga, however it appears I had a lot to learn. The blend of yoga including breathing relaxation and meditation by Jennie and the academic science behind sleep given by Dr Harrington blended well.
I left feeling refreshed, recharged and armed with more understanding on looking after myself and those that are part of my daily life”
Fiona Davis, Dru Yoga Teacher & Therapist
