Arianna Huffington said it first but we’ll happily say it again: sleep your way to the top. It’s indisputable that sleep is a vital ingredient for personal, relationship, and job success. But for most of us, it’s difficult to unwind. The anxiety of the day swirls through our pillow-resting heads, causing the dreaded toss and turn. These classes are designed to combat evening brain-spin. Offered only in the evening, they focus on deep relaxation and transition from stress to sleep (snoozing encouraged).
