The Rest Sessions: (Saturday 25th November 2023 2.30-4.45pm at Yoga Point, Brixton)
“The clue is in the name – RESTorative yoga is excellent for facilitating proper rest and relaxation in both body and mind. Restorative yoga is a receptive practice where you are supported and held – how many of us could deeply benefit from more of that?” (excerpt from Rest + Calm)
Join Paula for The Rest Sessions, in-person at Yoga Point. The Rest Sessions are a culmination of Paula’s teaching and practice to date and began online in Summer 2020 as a response to the pandemic. Grounded in restorative yoga, and including meditation, guided relaxation and (optional) journaling, this afternoon of contemplative practices is designed to help bring you back home to yourself – your true nature.
Some of the practices you will experience can be found in the pages of Paula’s book, Rest + Calm: Gentle yoga and mindful practices to nurture and restore yourself (Green Tree, Bloomsbury Publishing 2022), which features a range of rest sessions alongside numerous practices and accessible tips you can incorporate into day-to-day life to regulate your nervous system.
If you have attended The Rest Sessions before there will also be practices you have not experienced in previous sessions.
Props will be available at the studio, but you are also very welcome to bring along any favourite items you like to practice with such as blankets or eye pillows, and a notebook and pen for journaling.
Will you give yourself permission to rest?
