The instructor will engage participants in several forms of relaxation, varying from seated yoga to progressive muscle relaxation.

Participants will learn the importance of good sleep habits and understand how things such as alcohol and technology disrupt a normal sleep cycle. The program concludes with a relaxing meditation and lavender aromatherapy.
