Schlafedukation – our courses

The basic course consists of the first four modules and provides the most important knowledge for achieving and maintaining healthy and restful sleep.

Additional modules can be booked as required.

Regardless of the number of modules, the course is usually held virtually. The advantages of the virtual space allow participants to ask questions, some of them very personal, in a simple way. Each module lasts 75 minutes (60 + 15 minutes). Although the focus is on imparting knowledge during the first 60 minutes, participants can and should be able to ask questions at any time. This creates the character of a course, i.e. the interactive teaching is based on the emotional component. The last 15 minutes are used for an intensive exchange of ideas - this is where open questions are answered.
