The pause is as important
as the note

Truman Fisher

My aim is to help to support you to release the habit of the cycle of being in a stress consciousness, and to ease deep fatigue, improving our vitality and wellbeing as women.
 
Together we can explore and learn to approach our lives with more compassion, self-empathy and loving-kindness for ourselves, and others.

By providing more
holistic wellbeing support using accessible and sustainable relaxation methods and integrated wellbeing tools, which can be more effortlessly applied, and integrated into your busy everyday life.

I believe this powerful series of
Nourishing Rest practices in your personal wellness toolbox, offers you potent holistic wellbeing strategies which can deeply and profoundly restore, and soothe weary bodies and overwhelmed hearts and minds.

This helps to craft and sustain a quality life of more calm, alignment, balance, to cultivate self-empathy to enhance more profound inner harmony.
These practices along with personalised coaching strategies also serve to remind women of their own innate intuitive wisdom, loving-kindness and compassion, and re-awakens the capacity and receptivity to soothe, restore and heal ourselves.

 

These practices are particularly helpful if you struggle with chronic fatigue or long standing illness or chronic conditions, but anyone can benefit from the soothing deep restorative effects 
for whole-being well-being.


They effectively serve in deeply, and lovingly nurturing and nourishing ourselves.
 

May you be happy and well on your wellbeing journey.

Practices of deep rest, restore and recharge us to activate
our innate healing capacity.


Like sun, water, earth and air, and essentially space - rest and pause are vital ingredients
for our beings to flourish. Rest is a healing tonic and a balm to nourish us.

Like a flower and all its component parts -
petals, stem, seeds, leaves and roots,
to fully grow, bloom and flourish. 

 

Our bodies, and each system within,
should be treated as a whole,
being attentive to each part. 

We need to nourish wellbeing for every part of us - the whole of our being.


Give yourself permission to renew, restore and re-set.

Nourishing rest offers a holistic approach to health and whole being wellbeing,
nourishing every part of ourselves, our bodies, our minds and our hearts, and for maintained spiritual sustenance.

My own experience with the practices shared
& my intention for creating 'Nourishing Rest '


 


"The soothing, restorative combination of practices of Nourishing Rest, and in particular Yoga Nidra is truly a form of gentle yet 'powerful rest.' It has been an invaluable method to support my own wellbeing, pain management and increased energy levels."
Due to a longstanding chronic illness, I explored practices that would nourish and calm my body from exhausting pain, and depletion from the trauma effects of being ill. I have particularly found Yoga Nidra to be an invaluable tool for my wellbeing regimen, in combination with the  harmonious series of restorative Nourishing Rest practices.  They help to sustain more ease for pain management, enhance inner peace, and resilience, and to instil more balance and awareness.

 

For anyone with chronic illness and chronic fatigue, or on a path of recovery from burn-out or convalescing from illness, these practices help to strengthen receptivity for the body's healing process and support better and deeper quality rest and sleep.  I have personally found that by doing these practices regularly, even for short periods, helps to sustain more resilience and an increased capacity to cope better with chronic fatigue and chronic illness, especially during a bad pain flare up. 
These practices are also used to help combat PTSD and trauma and have been practiced in prisons and with ex-combat military staff to calm the nervous system and to help cope better.  Many studies have, and continue to be done, about their profound restorative benefits, particularly meditation, breathing techniques and yoga nidra. 


Anyone can benefit from these nourishing practices
for whole being well-being.
