“With an in-depth presentation of the nature of sleep, Stephens orients the avid reader to what lies behind getting, or not getting, a good night’s sleep, offering yoga practices—including yoga nidra—that are an exquisite means of self-enquiry and awakening. I hope this book find its way into the hands of many.”

“Finally, a yogic approach to insomnia that integrates yoga and science! Mark Stephens distills the essential insights of neuroscience, psychology, and the yoga tradition to better understand the nature of sleep and how to improve sleep using yoga rather than pharmaceutical drugs and narrow behaviorist techniques. With chapters on yoga for specific conditions—including stress, anxiety, and depression—and for different ages, this book offers an invaluable resource for anyone interested in better sleep and a healthier life.
