Hi Reader,

I'd like to celebrate this festive season with you with what I consider to be one of the best gifts we can give ourselves: rest šŸ¦¦

Rest is essential to our wellbeing and yet we rarely make the time for it. Personally, it's not until I really let myself give in that I realise how much I need it & how natural it feels. It's so easy to get caught up in the constant doing and forget how to just be.

"Rested, we are ready for the world but not held hostage by it, rested we care again for the right things and the right people in the right way." - Rest by David Whyte

Restorative Yoga is a therapeutic practice that uses props to support us in passive poses and induce deep relaxation. It allows us to be present to ourselves and return to a state of wholeness by relieving deeply held physical, mental, and emotional tension.

In this video, I show you how to set up for Savasana like you've never experienced it before, building a cocoon of blankets & cushions for total comfort. Then I guide you through a Yoga Nidra, a form of meditation that takes you to explore the edges between wakefulness & sleep (one of my favorite practice).

Yoga teacher Judith Lasater was asked by students: "How often should I practice restorative yoga? Every day?"
Her answer was: "No, no, no! Only on the days you want to feel better."

I hope you give this one a go, and wish you a joyful & peaceful holiday :)
