Join a Two Part Series on Non Sleep Deep Rest in November and December

​Wrap up your 2023 with a boost for your body’s relaxation response. Please join us for a two-part series on non-sleep deep rest hosted by Leslie Pont, Program Manager for NIH Fitness & Well-being, with special guest Allison Rose, Ayurveda Yoga and Fitness Specialist from the National Center for Weight and Wellness

This session will offer a Q&A session with research and discussion followed by a 20-minute relaxation practice. Non-sleep deep rest, or NSDR for short, is a method of deep relaxation. It was developed by Dr. Andrew Huberman, a neuroscientist and professor at Stanford University School of Medicine. In the form of guided meditation, NSDR combines mindful breathing and body scanning to bring you into an aware, yet relaxed state. This series is sponsored by the NIH R&W Fitness Program.
