Anandi The Sleep Guru

The retreat is designed to improve health and explore the different ways to deeply relax, recharge and re-energise

Alison Francis, better known as her sleep guru name Anandi, is set to lead the path to greater wellbeing by organising a Breath Wellness Retreat in Umbria, Italy. The venue of the five-night retreat starting on Wednesday May 17 2017, is a 14th century monastery nestled deep in the Umbrian forest.

During the retreat, guests can participate in yoga, advance breathing techniques and experiencing the power of gong meditation. The retreat gives visitors the ability to unwind, recharge, detach from a busy lifestyle and heal from within.

London-based Anandi said, “The retreat is designed to improve health and explore the different ways to deeply relax, recharge and re-energise. Guests will explore deeper aspects of yoga and breathing techniques to help get a profound sleep.”

As well as experiencing advanced meditation skills, the retreat will also have a number of workshops available to the attendees. Participants will learn Anandi’s secrets and strategies for getting a good night’s sleep and better wellbeing.

The price of the Breath Wellness Retreat in Italy is £1,250 and includes classes, educational resources and one-to-one time with Anandi. Airport transfers are also included provided you arrive on recommended flights. To get involved with the Breath Wellness Retreat you can register on Anandi’s website.

Anandi is the author of new book ‘Breathe Better, Sleep Better’ and uses breathing techniques to improve sleeping patterns with a simple step-by-step system. The book offers a systematic approach using breath as a tool to give a lifestyle balance and get a good night’s sleep. ‘Breathe Better, Sleep Better’ helps people with their sleeping issues using a number of practical exercises. Anandi also has free sleep advice available on her website.
