  • Seattle Fire Department 301 2nd Ave S, Seattle, WA 98104 (map)

WE ARE HONORED TO SHARE THE FIRST RESPONDER SLEEP RECOVERY PROGRAM IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE SEATTLE FIRE DEPARTMENT OFFICERS’ ASSOCIATION TO BENEFIT THE HEALTH AND WELLNESS OF ITS' MEMBERS. 

Join AXS Wellness Founder & sleep expert, Jacqueline Toomey & her firefighter husband & instructor Sean Toomey of the Denver Fire Department on April 26th - 27th for an introduction to the First Responder Sleep Recovery Program. In this educational seminar, you will have an introductory experience of the Sleep Recovery Practice.  The Sleep Recovery Practice is rooted in yoga nidra methodology, which is a Department of Defense endorsed relaxation practice that has been shown to lower blood pressure, treat PTSD/ depression / anxiety,  improve sleep quality and increase overall sense of wellbeing. The US Surgeon General also endorsed yoga nidra in 2010. 

Sleep loss is part of the job. We get that. It always will be. That’s why we are here. We educate on how sleep works and how to optimize the little sleep you do get as a firefighter. There are proven techniques and practices you will learn in our class to maximize your sleep.  This life changing class is not just helpful to your sleep, it’s health saving. You see, research is now showing that if you improve your sleep your risk for heart attack and cancer decreases. Your hormones like testosterone, your memory function, energy levels and mood will improve. Besides, who doesn’t want to feel better?   

In this class, expect to learn: 

- Myth-busters on what SLEEP is and isn’t
