A workshop combining of neuroscience, drumming, yoga and singing
More detailed information
Did you know that sleep is the key to optimal emotional balance, health and growth? If you're not getting enough quality sleep, it can affect every aspect of your life.
But did you also know that there are meditation and breathing techniques you can use to enter a different state of consciousness and actually reset and revitalize your brain during the day? In this workshop, you'll not only learn about how this works scientifically, but you'll also get to experience it for yourself. You'll leave this workshop feeling rested, rejuvenated, and with a better understanding of how to get the most out of your sleep. You’ll also leave with the knowledge and skills to reset your brain whenever you want!
After participating in this dynamic experience, a number of things happened:
You’ve received ground-breaking information and neuroscience-clarity about the power of sleep and other states of your mind.
You understand the energetic and resting processes of your mind.
You’ve discovered how the experience of deep-rest contributes to focus and resilience in a stressful environment.
You’ve experienced how simple use of breath-exercises and Yoga Nidra meditation can bring instant relaxation.
You’ve experienced what it is like to be sung to sleep.
You can use sleep and yoga nidra for resilience against stress.
You’ll go home with techniques you can use for optimal decision-making during stressful times.
You’ll go home with the ultimate sleep checklist with tips and tricks.
This yoga nidra neuroscience experience will give you the tools you need to improve your sleep and “active rest” during day increasing your overall health. In just one session, you'll walk away feeling rested, rejuvenated, and equipped with the knowledge to reset your brain whenever needed.
Leo van Woerden is a neuroscientist and sleep expert who has dedicated his life to (helping) understand the human brain. He has developed products and techniques for an optimal state of mind, focus, energy and sleep. With which your health and development will be optimized. Leo comes from a family of six children and is the son of doctors. He was always bursting with energy. In high school, he played drums in a band and could not concentrate well on anything else. One of the first in his generation, he was diagnosed with ADHD, which sparked his interest in human biology. He wanted to learn more about how people function and how to optimize it. When he started studying neuroscience at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, he learned that people are the way they are mainly because of how they have been shaped in their lives. It turns out you can get ADHD symptoms from sleep deprivation. The way you shape yourself is largely up to you and this is where you can take control. Leo helps you with personal insight and combines this with neuroscience knowledge. So you can take control over your health by controlling your behaviour, nutrition and environment. Leo has in depth knowledge of the brain, sleep, nutrition and plant extracts, minerals and vitamins. He has developed supplements from natural ingredients. Nutrition tailored to the needs of our western brain. This is why Leo has made it his mission to combine his positive energy along with his neuroscience knowledge and drumming skills in his workshops, lectures and trainings. Through his entertaining way of presenting, you get a particularly effective "neuroscience crash course." He connects, helps you take control, and gets you driven to make those lasting changes.
